QUOTE: More, tragically, beyond these observations, I can
testify to a disturbing flow of private complaints from
witnesses who feel victimized by the investigator's rash and
amateurish treatment of them. 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
