Sexual Abuse Recalled: Treating Trauma in the Era of the Recovered Memory Debate provides clinical discussion and knowledge from state-of-the-art research in order to further the treatment of adult survivors of abuse. Mental health professionals will find this psychodynamically oriented book helpful when confronted with dilemmas, questions, or concerns about adults who may have been abused as children. While it is possible for memories of abuse that have been forgotten for decades to be remembered, it is also possible to construct pseudo-memories for events that never actually occurred. Deciding which is the case as well as which of the remembered events approximate reality is often a complex task. This volume will be welcomed by mental health professionals seeking thoughtful guidance for their therapeutic work.
