Finkelhor, D. (2004) discovered several gaps in the research knowledge associated with the history of childhood sexual abuse. The authors affirm that the plethora of research that is currently available on adult survivors of CSA is valuable; however, they cite some weaknesses in some of those studies, particularly with regard to how questions are posed to adult survivors of CSA. It has become apparent that in some interviews, the researchers asked many leading questions that confounded the adult survivors' abilities to recall important events and information. Because so many survivors tend to repress specifics about the abuse, it is difficult to obtain completely accurate information to develop a knowledge base in this area.

This gap often occurs as the result of practitioners not being trained in empirically effective methods or their inability to understand the practice. This barrier to effective practice presents the danger of interview mismanagement, in which leading questions and other indiscretions can lead to false memories and other inaccurate information. In addition, it will also be difficult for the practitioner to distinguish which statements are false and which ones are true.

[...] Next, attempts can be made to institute socialized medicine into America. Fiscally, it makes sense for the United States to embrace a nationalized health care system. In March, 2005, the California Health Care Foundation reported that the United States currently spends the most money on health care when compared with all other industrialized nations, despite the fact that approximately 16% of its citizens are not insured. Additionally, all other industrialized nations have some form of nationalized health care and consistently spend less on health care than the United States. [...]
