Whether the brother is a therapist or not is immaterial from the point of view of offering his opinion as a brother. He was not offering therapy but commenting from his own experience and memory of that time period. From what I can tell, all Kaitlin was saying is that given his age and back ground as a professional he makes a creditable witness. Something lawyers, and juries do all the time. Both prosecution and defence will often ask a jury "who do you find most creditable" .

In truth that is partly true. As a child we have this natural instinct for survival. It is one of the things that most adults have issues with when they are facing a dispute with their parents. Regardless of what is right for them they feel obligated to their parents to act differently. It is why it is very hard for any child to speak against their parents.

I know there has been number of researches (including my own) that point to a genetic thing that is in our brain because it is imprinted in our survival mode. It is one of the things why it is so hard for a child to testify against their parents.

Now above stated - let me be very clear - I can't say if the girl is indeed influenced by her mother and has given a false testimony. Since the possibility does exist. Just as I am unable to state that the brother is able to lie for his father.
