I'm new here and you're my point person. I have a question about memory. I was molested about 40 years ago, but I don't really remember the full extent of the event. It may have been a minor groping, but it may have been major. My therapist suggests that I'm suppressing the full extent of the event, but I just don't remember. What does SNAP have to say about repressed and recovered memories of these traumatic events? Are they reliable? Is it worth the effort to try and recover such memories?
What's the state of the art on this?
