The files I have accumulated tell a grim tale of cases where the ufologists actually increased the victim's distress, forcing him or her to seek professional treatment elsewhere. They contain phrases like "I am currently involved in therapy with (specialist's name withheld). He believes that (the abductionist) reinforced through hypnosis not only his own preconceived notions, but also the context of what I may have garnered (such as the movie based on the Betty and Barney Hill story)"(7). In another letter an abductee writes "this man's methods are most unethical . . . my stress for the most part is not from so-called "aliens" but from those who appear to be helping me cope with this phenomenon." ... AND ... "The study of abductions could be vastly improved. Sensational theories (which are not really theories in the scientific sense, but little more than strongly- held beliefs) should be de- emphasized and more serious investigations should be conducted, as Dan Wright has suggested. Whenever hypnosis is performed, I believe it should only be conducted under medical supervision by psychiatrists or psychologists with considerable clinical experience in the technique, and with an open mind (but no personal axe to grind) on the subject of UFO phenomena." - Jacques Vallee, 1992 Regression Hypnosis: Should Ufology Take A Stand?
