Parents Working for Change

A coalition of accused families and the professionals who support them has formed a non-profit corporation, Protecting Innocent Families, PIF web site. The group is now collecting signatures on a petition asking for an objective, scientific review of the evidence base for the current guidelines for diagnosing child abuse: PIF petition

Accused parents have formed a number of on-line interest groups, including

which requires joining Facebook.

The Bayne family in Canada has organized a number of conferences for the falsely accused, under the name Evidence Based Medicine and Social Investigation (EBMSI). EBMSI also provides resources and support to accused families at  http://ebmsigroup.weebly.com/. Their Facebook site is at https://www.facebook.com/Evidence-Based-Medicine-And-Social-Investigation-Conference-EBMSI-114734805281786/?fref=ts

I’ve written up my notes from Dr. John Plunkett’s talk at the 2012 EBMSI conference at “Evidence-Based Medicine and Shaken Baby Syndrome,” and the talk by attorney Zachary Bravos at  “Parents, Meet the Experts, Experts, Meet the Parents.

A number of individuals have become activists on their own, reaching out to affected families and helping them through the crisis. For a moving presentation by a potent force, see this YouTube video, and for a from-the-heart blog, please see Not Shaken: Surviving False Accusations of Child Abuse.
