Sue Luttner maintains the blog OnSBS. She is a long time observer and reporter of the state of SBS in the justice system. We have reblogged many of her articles here on the WCB.
Ms. Luttner has recently had published a definitive, scholarly work that traces the origins of SBS, and explains why the hypothesis of SBS is scientifically questionable.
If you are student of SBS at all, this is a must read.
For me, the most cogent point the paper makes is that SBS evolved into being through massively flawed inductive reasoning, driven by statistically invalid anecdotal observations of extremely small populations. SBS is just a collection of guesses and speculations canonized into a “diagnosis,” which Prof. Deborah Tuerkheimer has so aptly stated is a “medical diagnosis of murder.”
