Christine Blasey Ford Studied Use of Hypnosis for Retrieval of Important Memories

The Democratic Party’s key weapon against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh did some studies an co-authored a paper about the use of hypnosis and memory. Christine Blasey Ford, who as far as we know has never taken a State board, did an academic paper, entitled “Meditation With Yoga, Group Therapy With Hypnosis, and Psycho-education for Long-Term Depressed Mood: A Randomized Pilot Trial.” It studied the effects of hypnosis on memory recovery.
