> I don't want to debate the whole false memory thing.

No, neither do I. I don't know that there is much to debate. Some memories are veridical and some aren't.

>I always ask myself who would want anyone to have these kinds of memories?!

Maybe someone who has had it suggested to them that that is the best / most likely explanation for their difficulties...

... And that if they continue to repress it they will never get better :-(

Its not a matter of 'wanting' memories. Its a matter of us just having mental pictures or whatever. And we interpret the picture as a 'dim copy of expereince'. We interpret the picture as a memory of something that has happened. And sometimes pictures just occur to someone because of past experiences in their lives... And other times pictures are suggested to someone, by a therapist for example...

I'm not at all trying to imply that many or most claims of abuse are false memories.
I'm not at all trying to imply that there isn't a correlation between trauma and dissociation.

I'm just saying that one has to be careful.

I say this because I've had past experience with therapists pressing me for stuff they believe must have happened to me.

At this point...

I don't think they are right.

It might turn out that they are...
I dunno...

I just know that some people have come up with claims by being led.

It has led to court cases and all.

Their claims have been shown to be unsubstantiated.
