If she found out that she was directly responsible for her grandpa’s death and the travesty to the family that’s happened since, how could she cope with that?

Inevitably, the lives of the alleged perpetrators are also damaged, often irreparably – and the real tragedy is, of course, that the apparent memories of abuse that have been ‘recovered’ during such therapy are in all probability false memories, produced by the therapeutic techniques themselves, rather than being a record of events which ever actually took place.
