    I don't know the specific case, but it's not exactly uncommon for psychologists (or others) to convince children something took place which did not in reality.

    Kids don't need LSD, they're just naturally imaginative. And when they are continually and directly questioned about whether something happened to them, they can actually truly remember what they're being questioned about, as well as a host of other stuff they come up with because they're in the fantasy frame of mind. It's really an awful thing that was done to these children--they honestly remember abuse that probably never happened, but they're still affected negatively by the memories.

    Just an aside, but I have a very real and very frightening memory of being in the toy section of K-mart as a child when the bay doors burst open and a mean-looking clown on roller skates flew out pushing a shopping cart, scaring the bejesus out of me. I know there's no way this really happened but the memory is as real as can be. And nobody even had to suggest that one to me.

    Was it just continual direct questions about whether something happened that produced those answers? Or was it something more than that, like suggesting that something did in fact happen to them and pressuring them to make something up?

    Children have a tendency to tell people what they want to hear...Just imagine the situation. If the kid's not stupid, he/she shouldn't have much trouble figuring out what the police officer wants them to say. And the child can then become convinced it happened, because they are more trusting than adults (They have to be in order to learn).

    I think it was a combination of the two factors. Continual and direct questioning about specific things, coupled with a clear implication that the adults would be very pleased with the children if they had something to report. Kids will do a lot for approval.

    Moved some posts hereabouts.

    Instead of getting mad at me for splitting the thread, you can just thank me for not moving the whole discussion of implanted memories. It's tangentially relevant!
