Recovery therapy still being used to foster false accusations

“The belief that hidden memories can be ‘recovered’ in therapy should have been exorcised years ago, when a rash of false memories dominated the airwaves, tore families apart and put people on the stand for crimes they didn’t commit,” Pacific Standard magazine reports in a story you can find here.

Sadly, pseudoscientific recovery therapy is still being used, and, Pacific Standard says, “people are still paying the price.”

  2. Reblogged this on FORENSICS in FOCUS @ CSIDDS | News and Trends and commented:
    Sadly, US courts will accept almost any expert as “relevant” as long as the Pros uses them. Seems the rule about a “scientific community” extends to any group with more than 3 members. That’s when the “novel science” rules kicks in to allow admissibility. Just like bitemark ID believers.

  3. sorry…shouldn’t try to type at stoplights. It should have read “Linda Karlen”
