About-

When psychologists began hearing adults tell harrowing tales of childhood abuse, some dismissed the stories as false. Other therapists, however, recognized that the hidden memories might indicate multiple personality disorder, a complex coping strategy that helps victims deal with severe abuse.

In The Truth about False Memory Syndrome, Dr. Jim Friesen, a pioneer in the treatment of multiple personality disorder, tackles the subject of FMS with clarity and knowledge no tabloid or talk show can muster. An experienced and compassionate psychologist, Friesen takes the reader along as he helps his clients piece their lives back together and recover from abuse.

Through engrossing, yet unnerving, case studies of various patients, dealing with everything from sexual to satanic ritual abuse, Friesen draws a distinction between memory and fantasy, truth and falsehood. In the process, our misconceptions about the victims of abuse, and FMS, are dispelled.
