A debate has been raging in courtrooms, journals, and the popular press about the validity of recovered memories. The memories in question are of childhood sexual abuse, mistreatment, and trauma. They have tremendous power for harm or healing, for righting of wrongs or for unjust accusations; it all depends on their validity. Is it possible for a memory to be lost and then "recovered?" What is the validity of such a memory? Can children be persuaded that events did or did not happen? What causes childhood amnesia and are traumatic childhood memories more or less likely to be remembered than nontraumatic ones? This book examines these and other complex but critical questions. It presents the latest contributions from researchers representing the full range of positions on the issues and using many different approaches to the questions.The topics are organized as follows. Section I covers the effects of emotion and stress on memory in children. Section II contains analyses of the development of normal autobiographical memory as a context for understanding how childhood traumatic events might be recalled, whether at the time by children, or later by adults. Section III covers the suggestibility of memory. This issue is central because therapists may unwittingly induce false memories in their patients, and abusers may suggest to their victims that their memories are imaginary. Whether and how these can happen depends on suggestibility. The veracity of child witnesses also hinges to a great degree on their suggestibility. Section IV contains some examples from current literature and is the only place where the reports on recovered memories from both the American and the British Psychological Associations can be found.

Psychological trauma is a multifaceted phenomenon with extensive involvement of biochemical and neurological changes. This book originated on the basis of clinical observations and the authors believe that trauma is the region in which psych and soma meet each other and integrate, becoming a single entity. In this text, the authors attempt to integrate the psychosocial and bio-neuro-endocrine aspects of human experience, including trauma. Chapter 1 provides a psychobiological perspective of incest, and sexual abuse, and considers the stages of and reactions to incest that trauma clients have experienced. Chapter 2 focuses on trauma-related syndromes associated with survivors of sexual abuse. Chapter 3 continues the theme of the second chapter, providing further discussion of the link between sexual trauma and somatic sensations of discomfort and pain. Chapter 4 describes the frustration in treating drug/alcohol addicts and the discovery that these individuals have a history of hidden trauma which haunts them and prevents recovery. Chapter 5 explores the victims response to trauma and examines the nontraditional treatment models for psychological trauma. Chapter 6 presents psychotherapy practices used with incest survivors, and details treatment principles and goals and explains new treatment options. Chapter 7 explores the practice of pharmacotherapy in treating trauma-related disorders and focuses on the use of a variety of psychiatric medications for the treatment of PTSD. Chapter 8 presents creative and rehabilitative practices for treating victimized children and adolescents, pointing to the importance of art therapy in the recovery process of traumatized individuals. Chapter 9 provides an overview of play therapy/cognitive-behavioral therapy for sexually abused children and adolescents. Readers will find in this text a diversity of research topics and a variety of clinical observations that are not only useful but timely.
