(Mis) Representations of the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Sexual Abuse in the Courts.
Brown, Daniel
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v9 n3-4 p79-107 2001
Addresses representations made by pro-false memory attorneys and expert witnesses in court regarding the long-term effects of childhood sexual abuse. Examining the testimony revealed that such pro-false memory testimony was based on a partial understanding of retrospective data. Reviewing the totality of the scientific evidence demonstrates that such pro-false memory testimony is inaccurate and has the potential of misleading the jury. (Contains 58 references and 1 table.)
