At least three unrelated respondents in Karen Stoler’s dissertation, “Recovered and Continuous Memories of Childhood Sexual Abuse: A Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis”, report corroborated cases of childhood abuse. The dissertation includes more than three documented cases of recovered memory, but three of the delayed recall cases jump out of the detailed narratives as clearly corroborated. The second, subject 22D, recovered her memories of abuse by her father after hearing him talk about how she had slept in her parents’ bed as a child. Her memories were later corroborated by her sister, who had experienced similar abuse, causing her to run away from home (Stoler 2000).
