Rasputin Returns: David Jacobs versus Emma Woods
But there are times when, even in an era like this where things are so routinely screwed up, indulging certain spiritual yearnings can get you into trouble. I believe that is at least partly the case with Dr. David Jacobs, the abduction researcher who seems to be, in recent months, coming apart at the seams psychologically.
Jacobs is currently mired in a nasty controversy involving an ex-client. She claims he had psychologically abused her and had “engaged in extensive leading and suggestion” (from Emma Woods' Introduction on her website)
over the course of 91 hypnotic regressions and 37 hypnosis sessions. The sessions averaged 5 hours, according to Emma Woods (EW, not her real name).
Jacobs counters that EW is suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder, a charge he attempts to substantiate in his webpost “The Defamation Campaign
,” by making reference to two encyclopedic-type entries on borderline personality and defamation or “vilification” campaigns on websites which do not reference a specific author for these entries. (BPD Distortion Campaigns
and BPD Distortion Campaigns—Angiemedia
) He also states EW made several hang-up phone calls to him in the middle of the night and sent nasty emails to him. According to Jacobs, she sent her dossier to “every member of the UFO and abduction community that she could find in the English-speaking world.” (Defamation Campaign, hereafter DC
“I’ve consulted confidentially with a variety of psychologists, psychiatrists, and therapists,” Jacobs says on his website. “The overwhelming consensus is that [EW’s] stalking and obsessive behavior is consistent with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), although these medical professionals cannot, of course, make a formal diagnosis without seeing her.”...............
Also involved in the controversy is Dr. Jacobs’ webmaster, “Elizabeth Smith,” a pseudonym. Miss Smith used to have a blog about her abduction experiences. It is no longer available on blogger................
If Dr. Jacobs intended to exonerate himself of wrongdoing with his DC
post to his website, I’m afraid he’s accomplished quite the opposite.
The recordings of his phone calls with EW are pretty damaging to Dr. Jacobs’ cause. There are several disputes playing out in those recordings. The primary dispute, however, is over the authorship of certain threatening instant messages Dr. Jacobs received concerning his work with EW. EW claims the messages were authored by Jacobs’ webmaster, the AWOL Miss Smith. Jacobs says they were written by Alien-human hybrids upset over his involvement with EW.
Jacobs contends that EW described human looking aliens
, AKA hybrids, in their sessions. Webmaster Smith became involved when Jacobs invited EW to post the record of her experiences on his website. He said “I thought it would be instructive to others to learn how one person recovered memories through both recall and hypnosis sessions
.” Elizabeth Smith agreed to do the web work. Her access to EW’s information in her webmaster capacity is in part what led EW to suspect that Elizabeth Smith had concocted the instant messages in dispute...........
