False memory is the phenomenon in which a person is convinced a memory is true when it is not.
'What is happening is that ... people, usually during psychotherapy or counselling, are recovering 'memories' of having been sexually abused in childhood, even though those accused ... deny such abuse and there is no corroborating evidence... Such memories, if false, have severe consequences ... It is not uncommon for a whole network of family relationships to be destroyed as a result.' The BFMS incorporates a telephone helpline to support families affected by the phenomenon of false memory. The Society also offers advice and access to legal assistance.
