Overview

Wide ranging and balanced in scope, this book, by a member of the original BPS working party on recovered memories, includes in-depth discussion of topics such as: the distinction between explicit and implicit memory; the reliability of memory; truth and confabulation in remembering; repression and other forms of motivated forgetting; suggestion and other factors which can lead to false remembering; factors influencing forgetting; misguided and harmful therapeutic practices deriving from incorrect views of memory; Freud's sophisticated theories of memory; memory disturbances in PTSD; the significance of dissociation and dissociative identity disorder. It is important for psychoanalytic therapists to understand that disruptions of memory and cognition in traumatized patients may not be due to psychodynamic defence but may be the result of repeated onslaughts of stress-related brain hormones which alter brain function. The book contains careful discussion of current controversies within psychoanalysis regarding the therapeutic role of remembering and reconstructioning childhood experience. The author also presents a psychoanalytic perspective on EMDR, the increasingly widely used method of treating psychological trauma. The book will be of interest to psychotherapists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, counsellors and all mental practitioners who offer help to clients who have suffered trauma, either in childhood or during their adult life. The new edition incorporates much new material and clinical discussion.
