False Memories of Childhood Sexual Abuse

This 15 minute documentary highlights the devastating phenomenon whereby adults come to believe new-found memories of childhood sexual abuse which are not factually true. It introduces the key psychiatric, psychological and scientific issues which bear upon the false memory phenomenon. World renowned researchers and clinicians have contributed to the production of this video together with the tragic, yet sometimes hopeful, stories from families and their retracting sons and daughters.
