I believe that it is incorrect to say that most experts do not believe in recovered memories. Here is a link to just one of many sites discussing publications by experts in the field of trauma and recovery that do recognize the frequency of amnesia and delayed recall for traumatic events: http://www.jimhopper.com/memory/

Perhaps delayed recall of traumatic events is not the same thing as the "recovered memories" that you mention. I believe that in most of the publications mentioned above, the memories that are recollected are not drawn out by any intervention of a therapist of any sort. Rather they are recollected independently by the clients on their own. Although in most cases these clients were in therapy -- just not being led or prompted by their therapists to recover any memories.

I think also that most experts do agree that some "recovered memories" that have been reported in the past have turned out to be false. But that is a far cry from believing that there is no such thing as a recovered memory.
