Recovered memory therapy (RMT)

Statements made by
professional organizations

Sponsored link.


We are unaware of any professional psychiatric, psychological, social worker, or medical organizations which have endorsed the reliability and accuracy of all or most recovered memories. Many have urged caution in their interpretation.

Early statements on recovered memory therapy tended to be rather cautious. They indicated that recovered memories may or may not be true. However, later reports appear to lean more towards the dismissal of RMT as a dangerous and essentially useless technique. For example, the 1997-JUL report of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in particular seems to go well beyond the cautionary notes of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation.
