Links to RMT websites, years ago.
They are primarily of historical interest today:
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, who have now reached adulthood.
Listed below are links to web sites dealing with RMT. Since RMT has been almost completely abandoned by therapists today, most of these web sites listed below are probably off line permanently. Still, the listing is an interesting one because it illustrates the depth of the RMT pannic.
"Stop Bad Therapy" is a impressive and forceful expose of the
RMT movement and its spin-offs: Satanic Ritual Abuse, family and
personal destruction, the hazards of reading "the Courage to Heal," etc. See: http://www.stopbadtherapy.com/ This web site contains phone numbers of professional regulatory
boards in all 50 states.
The Witchhnt mailing list is devoted to the discussion of the reliability
of recovered memories and related topics. See: http://www.paganlibrary.com/
