David Spiegel, M.D., is Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and Director of the Psychosocial Treatment Laboratory at Stanford University School of Medicine, in Stanford, California.Review:
"Memory and the questions it raises cannot be avoided in diagnosis and treatment--when one takes a history from a patient, one elicits memories. These chapter provide up-to-date guidance from the scientific literature on how clinicians can best understand and use the memories patients provide. In an area dominated by harsh polemics, loud certainties, and appealing pseudoscience, these chapters are a bracing antidote. They guide us through the complex experimental and clinical literature in a way that encourages us to re-think what we think we know about this topic, to acknowledge what we still do not know, and to address carefully and knowledgably the practical questions of clinical decision-making. This carefully documented, thoughtful section should be read by every therapist, researcher, and expert witness."-- "Kenneth S. Pope, Ph.D., Author of Recovered Memories of Abuse: Assessment, Therapy, Forensics"
