Garrison, Ellen Greenberg; Kobor, Patricia Clem
American Psychologist, v57 n3 p165-75 Mar 2002
A 1998 article on the effects of child sexual abuse created a storm of controversy and was vehemently denounced by members of the general public, media outlets, conservative grassroots organizations, state legislatures, and Congress. This article chronicles these events, noting challenges faced by the American Psychological Association to resolve the crisis while upholding academic freedom and scientific integrity. (SM)
