I’m reading Science and Pseudoscience in Clinical Psychology and in a chapter about recovered memories, I found this:
In 1997, Nadean Cool won a $2.4 million malpractice settlement against her therapistin which she alleged that he used a variety of techniques and suggestive procedures to convince her that she had suffered horiffic abuse and harbored more than 130 personalities including demons, angels, children, and a duck.
The emphasis is, of course, mine.
If anyone out there knows how to provide psychotherapy to a duck, please let me know. If breadcrumbs are involved I want to be prepared.
Of course, the other issue is that you could never tell with any validity if the woman was a witch.
