How accurate is memory? Are there important differences in how and what we remember across the life span? What is the prevalence of "repressed memory" for traumatic events? What is the best way for therapists to elicit accurate memories from someone who may be a victim of incest? This book addresses these and other compelling questions reflecting deep divisions in scientific opinion, professional practice, and legal decision making. Leading researchers and practitioners review the current literature, describe new findings and clinical techniques, and draw upon their extensive experience in the field to provide diverse perspectives on the place of memory in our lives and the impact upon memory of personal, interpersonal, and situational influences.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"It is difficult to imagine a more timely book than Truth in Memory. The diverse group of contributors provides revealing analyses of theoretical, clinical, and legal issues. This volume is essential reading for anyone seriously interested in understanding the nature of memory and its profound impact on our everyday lives." --Daniel L. Schacter, PhD, Professor and Chair of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of Searching for Memory

"Given all the heat in the recovered memory controversy, it is time for some light. This book focuses the light of recent as well as classic research on the question of how and when memory is truthful. The book's perspective is guided by a clear vision of the role of hypnotic phenomena in memory. These balanced and informative chapters bring together the work of the very best scientists and clinicians." --Daniel M. Wegner, PhD, Professor of Psychology, University of Virginia, and author of White Bears and Other Unwanted Thoughts

Presents authoritative findings on issues surrounding memory, repressed memories, and false memories, and the impact of personal, interpersonal, and situational influences on memory. Contains sections on foundational principles, early autobiographical memories, suggestion and suggestibility in children, memory and psychotherapy, and false memories in the domains of the law, textbooks, and the media. Of interest to professionals, researchers, and students in psychology, psychiatry, and mental health law. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
