"Those who study memory find no essay answers when they try to validate the authenticity of human memories. Editor Prozan provides a fresh, unbiased look at the issues involved in the false memory debate. She neither endorses nor discards the "false memory syndrome" in this book. Embracing theoretical, legal, and clinical issues, the book takes a strong psychoanalytical approach in exploring how adults remember, recall, and recount memories from childhood experiences in general, and from child sexual abuse in particular. Theoretical issues are presented clearly, taking into account relevant and recent memory research. Legal issues involved in the repressed memory controversy are presented from a variety of perspectives, providing a well-rounded look at pertinent issues. The final eight chapters explore clinical issues and provide interesting and thought-provoking material for therapist and student alike. An asset to upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and psychotherapists."-Choice Magazine."-- Provided by publisher.
