False Memories...


Barbara Snow, the therapist that was in the forefront of the 1980s Utah/LDS Satanic Ritual Abuse hysteria and false memory syndrome saga has apparently been practicing her craft til recently, and has recently been disciplined:

'In January 2007, the division accused Snow of violating Utah codes of professional conduct and ethical principles defined by the National Association of Social Workers.

Thanks for posting this info!

I grew up in Orem during the '80s Satanic Panic, and had occasionally wondered what happened to the "ringleaders."
