The Australian False Memory Association is holding its Annual Conference and AGM in Melbourne, on 18th October.
Ms Tanya Vogt is the newly appointed Team Leader in Workforce Strategy and Regulation in the Service and Workforce Planning Section of the Victorian Department of Human Services. She will give us an update on the progress of the recommendations from the 2005 Victorian Government Inquiry into Recovered Memory Therapy.
Dr Grant Devilly has recently researched the influence of debriefing on those exposed to trauma and on eyewitness memory. He will relate his research to issues surrounding recovered memories. His next research will focus on the differences in quality and confidence of true memories and those that result from misinformation.
Dr Margaret Schofield of La Trobe University will be represented by her Research Assistant, who will report on the ‘Guidelines for Working with Recovered Memory’ issued by the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA).
The final session will feature a reconciled family who will discuss their situation and its possible implications for others.
