Phi Beta Kappa Scholar At Willamette University

Dr. Paul McHugh, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry at John Hopkins University, is the Willamette University 2003 Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar.

McHugh will give a free public lecture Tuesday, Nov 4, at 7:30 pm in the Hatfield Room of the Hatfield Library. His talk, entitled "The Memory Wars and Multiple Personality: A Psychiatric Misdirection," will cover false memory syndrome and the concept of repressed memory of childhood sexual abuse, and how psychiatric theory and treatment "went awry in the 1980s and 1990s."

McHugh served on the National Review Board for the Protection of Children and Young People of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and currently serves on the President's Council on Bioethics.
