Trauma and Memory

Clinical and Legal Controversies

Edited by Paul S. Appelbaum, Lisa A. Uyehara, and Mark R. Elin

This book is a comprehensive, scholarly, and balanced guide to the controversies revolving around recovered trauma memories, especially childhood sexual abuse. The contributors provide a road map to the exciting new research on memory, including the ways in which it is affected by trauma. Therapeutic approaches to patients suffering the after-effects of trauma are considered in detail. Finally, the book addresses how these clinical controversies have made their way into the courts, and considers what our society's responses should be.
