Return of the Furies
An Investigation into Recovered Memory Therapy

Hollida Wakefield and Ralph Underwager

People who experience everyday difficulties like anxiety or overeating are now often told by therapists that the root of their trouble is a 'repressed memory' of abuse in childhood. But are the supposed memories recovered in therapy genuine? Or are they concocted by therapists and clients in the course of therapy? Wakefield and Underwager have meticulously studied recovered memory therapy and have become recognized as its leading critics. In Return of the Furies, they give a comprehensive analysis of this new witch-hunting craze, in all its ignorance, irrationality, and shocking cruelty.

"Perceptive readers will be shocked by the evidence Wakefield and Underwager present exposing the frequent abuses perpetrated by Child Protective Services personnel, the growing extent of anti-sexuality in our society, the incompetence of many mental health professionals, the profound limitations of human memory, and the irrationality underlying claims of satanic ritual abuse."
