Examines the assumptions underlying "False Memory Syndrome," as well as the epidemiologial evidence, to determine whether there is sufficient empirical evidence to support it as a valid diagnostic construct. Demonstrates that the existence of such a syndrome lacks general acceptance in the mental health field, and that the construct is based on a series of faulty assumptions, many of which have been scientifically disproven.
