Finally, from a forensic psychiatric standpoint, this issue has created havoc for patients, families, and, most recently, therapists. Ms. Lipton, in her final chapter, discusses the cases that have come to court and the consequences of these cases. As a representative of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, she shows her bias in her final statement, which nevertheless poses a challenge for all therapists: "Greater judicial scrutiny of these claims will, one hopes, inspire the mental health professions to adopt higher standards of education and training and more explicit ethical guidelines that will reduce to a minimum the questionable therapy practices that gave rise to these claims." In some cases, she is correct, but not in all cases. One must keep an open mind about this highly controversial phenomenon and attempt to adhere to the scientific explanation that is bolstered by the judicial discrimination between truth and fact.
