If we are going to cite references, I think it's important to place them in context, especially as to their "scientific viablity."

In "Memory and Abuse," Charles L. Whitefield, MD, who is a well-respected psychotherapist ("voted by his peers as being one of the best doctors in America") clearly makes the distinction between traumatic memory and regular memory. It has all the (scientific) arguments anyone could need to verify that we process traumatic memories differently, especially pre-verbal and very early childhood memories. These memories can be caught in our unconcious, trapped, and stay hidden until we are able to process them completely.

Furthermore, just in case you didn't know, I understand from my reading that the False Memory Syndrome Foundation was founded by a couple, an alcoholic and his co-dependent wife (who are also step-siblings believe it or not) in response to their daughter's accusation that her father had sexually abused her. The daughter is a well-qualified psychotherapist in her own right. The Foundation does not carry on any scientific research of its own, and primarily exists to aid people who have been accused of committing sexual abuse. Furthermore, at least one of their former board of directors members publicly stated that he believes pedophilia is an acceptable practice.

So, take what you will, but I'll stick with the facts.
