I'm well aware. :( What I am looking for is some way to explore/heal some memory issues I have without falling into this kind of trap.

A good book is TRAUMA and RECOVERY by Judith Lewis Herman.
[www.jimhopper.com]

This is explains why we sometimes "forget" certain memories. We "banish them from consciousness" as they are too painful.

Just stay away from Hypnosis, and "suggestion" and all the rest. They can contaminate, and even create "memories".

Also, here is a good general self help FREE book.

In my view, this is a good initialresource for dealing with trauma and PTSD. Of course, seek good professional help, but there is a lot people can do to help themselves.

You can download the entire free ebook mentioned above, Psychological Self Help from here. It really is an excellent piece of work.

Unfortunately, we have lost a daughter (she’s now 19) due having false memories of sexual abuse (initially by some schoolmates which eventually expanded to include her father) due to “recovered memory therapy” by two of the therapists at Mercy Ministries, as she has cut off all contact with us. We are not interested in suing (even though the therapists sure deserve to be!) , we just want our daughter back and pray that someday she come to realize that these memories are false. The place she was treated by these therapists at seems to be a cleverly-disguised cult…I corresponded recently with someone who was her roommate and that’s what she claims it was and they use “recovered memory therapy” as a way of control and an effective way of separating them from their "family of origin".
