The Myth of "Stockholm Syndrome"

Nils Bejerot, the psychiatrist who coined the term 'Stockholm Syndrome', never interviewed the woman whose experience he coined it to describe.

Allan Wade had interviewed the female hostage of the Stockholm bank robber—the woman who supposedly had 'Stockholm Syndrome', Kristin Enmark. The second half of the video describes her version of the original Stockholm syndrome event.
