Abstract:

The False Memory Syndrome Foundation (FMSF) is a non-profit organization opposed to "adult/children" who make claims of childhood sexual abuse. Ironically, the FMSF itself is structured, functions and provides the same type of services as rape, incest and other abuse support groups provide. This paper presents the FMSF as simply another support group - a very successful and dominating one - for parents who believe they are victims of abuse by their children. The paper also considers whether inexpensive internet and video technology, in a time of high unemployment, encourages a "home" or "cottage industry of child pornograghy that generates parents who would have vested interests in joining the FMSF in order to provide themselves with some protection in case their children remember some kind of abuse later in life. These are the highlights of this paper titled, "Conceptualizing Parents as Victims of their Children: the founding of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation." To summarize, this paper describes the FMSF's organization and goals, then explains in detail the way it was founded by the actions of specific parents in a particular family dispute and also considers the social consequences, the meaning and the future of this organization.
