    The Controversy of Recovered Memories. The controversy associated with recovered memories has been a topic of debate for some time. This has primarily been the case when it comes to individuals who have been victimized by terrible sexual acts of violence, or other traumatic events. But perhaps the most tragic part of this entire episode is that anyone who ever took so much as a Psych class should have been in a position to speak out against this lynch-mob mentality yet.

    Recovered memory definition is - a memory of a traumatic event (such as sexual abuse) experienced typically during childhood that is forgotten and then recalled many years later that is sometimes held to be an invalid or false remembrance generated by outside influence.   Some Recovered Memories More Reliable Than Others. Author: Tom Jacobs were given two standard false-memory tests.

    1. Whether it is possible to repress a memory 2. Whether traumatic events can be recovered 3. Whether false events can be implanted into the memory. A recent book describes, also in detail, the role of recovered memories in the infamous Jerry Sandusky case, and the harmful effects of treatment administered with the assumption that it was helping. Whether one is exploring what one has done or had done to them, it is vital to recall that treatment poorly delivered is not a benevolent event.
