The Experiences of Families Caught in this Tragedy

"When Memories Lie... The Rutherford Family Speaks To Families" (1 hour video)
During therapy, one of the three Rutherford family daughters came to believe that she had "recovered repressed memories" of her father and mother physically and sexually abusing her. The other daughters came to believed the accusations, and the family was divided with the children cutting off contact from the parents. The daughters conveyed the accusations to the father's church and he lost his job as a church official. Fortunately, the daughters ultimately realized one by one that the "memories" were not real and the family was reunited. In this insightful video, four of the Rutherford family members each recount their experience, their perspective on what happened, and the lessons which others can learn from this family's experience. Topics discussed include how the memories developed, how the daughters' lives deteriorated, how the daughters perceived the parents' actions during this period, the impact of the accusations on the parents, how the parents coped with the accusations, how two of the daughters cooperated with the parents to help bring the third daughter back, and how the parents acted while in the process of resuming contact with the accusing daughter. This is a story with a happy ending and with valuable lessons for any family which is split by "recovered memories" and accusations. At only $10, it's an unbeatable deal too!
