Crisis or Creation? A Systematic Examination of "False Memory Syndrome."
Dallam, Stephanie J.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v9 n3-4 p9-36 2001
Critically examines the assumptions underlying "False Memory Syndrome" to determine whether there is sufficient empirical evidence to support it as a valid diagnostic construct. A review of the relevant literature demonstrates that the existence of such a syndrome lacks general acceptance in the mental health field, and that the construct is based on a series of faulty assumptions.
