Divided Memories, Part 2
Program Number


Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

Today, a raging debate over the validity of repressed memory of sexual abuse divides the therapeutic community, the women's movement and thousands of accusers and accused. FRONTLINE examines the complicated issue of repressed memory, including what is known about memory and how it works as well as what is known about the therapeutic practices that elicit information from patients. Part 2 looks at the effects that remembered abuse has had on the families involved and explores how we distinguish real memories from those which are not true.
