Why Your Family is in Danger
Do you think it could never happen to you? You're wrong. That's what I thought too.
This site is for you. It's too late for my family to avoid the agony of
False Memory Syndrome,
but perhaps it's
not too late for yours. If you value your happiness,
learn how to
recognize when someone
is developing false memories and
email your elected officials to stop the use of
taxpayer dollars and health insurance premiums for unsafe, untested
therapies which hurt patients who desperately need help. Stop bad therapy
before it stops you. Once it happens to you, it's too late.
sexual, and emotional abuse are
real problems, but so are false accusations
of abuse based on so-called "repressed memories" which were supposedly
"recovered" during therapy. If you're
not lucky, it could happen to you too. As long as irresponsible therapists
continue to practice so-called "Memory Recovery Therapy,"
no one is safe.
Your family may be next.
Protect yourself and your family
before it's too late. No one else will. Not
the therapists who profit by creating clients who are isolated, dependent,
and emotionally disturbed for life. Not the state licensing boards which
have members who have made money this way themselves, which prefer to "go
along and get along," and which respond only to lawsuits and publicity,
not to the pleas of anguished, brokenhearted, innocent families and
devastated retractors. Not the
which are too paralyzed by conflict of interest to take a principled stand
against junk science and dangerous therapy which has never been shown to
be safe or effective. Not the legal system that blocks anguished, falsely
accused family members from suing the therapists who are responsible or
speaking out about what the therapists have done. Not the beloved family
member who places her trust in an ignorant, irresponsible, or manipulative
therapist and is one step at a time taught to "recover memories" of events
that never happened and to hate her family.
Today, going to a therapist for help is like dialing 911 from a
broken-down car on a lonely road at night and knowing that maybe
the police will answer, but maybe a serial killer
will answer instead, and having no way to know which
will show up. As long as therapies need not be tested for safety and
effectiveness and therapists are not required to get informed
consent, no one is safe from "serial therapists" who inflict
harmful treatments on vulnerable, unwitting clients and their families.
