Summary By reviewing the litigation surrounding the false memory debate, the authors hope to provide psychologists with an extra measure of judiciously applied "defensive practice." This review identifies certain treatment procedures that courts have found to fall outside the gambit of acceptable professional practice. Ethical violations commonly alleged in the treatment of patients who litigate are identified. It is contended that the book may be especially helpful for psychology educators and supervisors. Many of their students and supervisees may be unfamiliar with the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (1992), have unscientific notions about the creation and retrieval of memories, or be uninformed about acceptable professional standards in the diagnosis and treatment of adult patients who suspect they had been abused as children.
