Recovered Memory Therapy (RMT)

Links to RMT websites

Sponsored link.

Starting in the 1980's, a series of horrendous criminal cases were pursued against adults in daycare centers, Sunday schools, etc There were also thousands of cases in which adults initiated lawsuits against their own parents for extreme sexual abuse during the plaintiff's childhood. Much of the evidence in these cases was based on suggestive interview and therapy techniques of children and adults, often called Recovered Memory Therapy (RMT). Most therapists now believe that many, if not most, of the abuse events never happened. False memories were created by adults during recovered memory therapy. Non-existent stories of sexual abuse were implanted in the minds of young children.

The legacy of these events are broken families of origin, impoverished older couples, and children with profoundly destructive memories of events that never happened.

Listed below are links to web sites dealing with RMT.
