Truth in Memory: Ramifications for Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy

Truth in Memory: Ramifications for Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy Abstract In this article we address a number of issues relevant to the practice of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy: How reliable is memory? How are therapists' and clients' beliefs and expectancies related to pseudomemory formation? Are certain clients particularly vulnerable to pseudomemory creation? Does hypnosis pose special hazards for pseudomemory reports? What are the variables or factors that mediate hypnotic pseudomemories? In addition to reviewing the literature on these topics, we intend to sensitize the clinician to the potential pitfalls of critical reliance on the patient's memories, as well as uncritically accepted clinical beliefs and practices. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis Taylor & Francis
