False memories can be created unintentionally by the unconscious: or another way to explain how a memory can be constructed in therapy and believed to be truly recovered, one can look to false memory theories of “associative activation” and “thematic consistency” (Gallo, 2006, p. 51-53). Associative activation “refers to the activation of concepts stored in semantic memory due to the processing of other concepts found at the same conceptual level” (Gallo, 2006, p. 51); in other words, one scenario activates another scenario. According to this theory, if the activation of a concept is strong enough it becomes believable, and furthermore, one can begin to believe it happened to them.

INTRODUCTION False memory is the psychological phenomenon in which a person recalls a memory that did not actually occur. It is a fabricated or distorted recollection of an event that did not actually happen. It is a memory which is a confabulation of an imagined situation or a distortion of an actual experience. It is a mental experience that is mistakenly taken to be a veridical representation of an event from one’s recent or distant past. False memory is also known as pseudomemory or pseudomnesia.
False memories are more likely to be formed when misleading information is provided. The misinformation effect is defined as the phenomenon where one reports an inaccurate memory of an event after being given misleading information. A significant part of the effect is that participants have to experience the original event, and then these episodic memories are distorted. Episodic memories are “information about temporally dated episodes or events and temporal-spatial relations among these events.” Remembering the correct sequential, temporal order of episodic memories is crucial and tends to be difficult to do. Factors that cause poor temporal order memory are normal aging, certain types of diseases and is especially difficult for older adults and younger children.

Societies often have expectations and standards that individuals are expected to adhere to.
