For those who have never met any one who has been a victim of false memory, it may seem impossible to comprehend how a person can be so brainwashed, so manipulated.
When one does some research, it is amazing how many people have been victims.
The number of successful lawsuits brought against psychotherapists since the late 1970s is staggering.
How people, normal people, have had their memories so tarnished that they believe events that never happened is based on the control the therapist exerts over the patient.
False memory is not putting a ‘spin’ on an event, this is creating an event. With no proof, no history, an event that never happened is inserted into the mind of a patient, cultivated to the extent that it is fully believed.
