Dear Friend of Justice,

A great many injustices have been caused by dangerous techniques used by psychotherapists who abhor scientific method — e.g., coercive interviewing of children (and adults) and the implantation of false memories.

An important new report has been published documenting the attitudes many therapists have about science:

There have also been articles about this study in the Los Angeles Times (click here) and Newsweek (click here).
