Is Fantasy Dangerous to the Health of Children? Credibility of Memory Research Validating Creation of False Realities.
Leavitt, Frank
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v8 n3 p95-106 1999
Reviews studies which concluded that brief fantasy exercises can create false memories in preschool children. Raises important issue about the credibility of memory-creation research with preschool children. States that there are social costs in perpetuating information derived from studies that were not appropriately designed to adequately test either source misattribution theory or false memory creation.
