Trauma and memory

Truth of Memory and Memory of Truth

Becoming informed about trauma (`trauma-informed’) requires basic knowledge about memory. Research into the workings of memory is rapidly expanding. 

This Blue Knot publication presents and discusses current research findings around the nature, process, and functions of memory, with particular emphasis on traumatic memory. These research insights are important for legal and health professionals as well as the general public. Misconceptions about memory are common. They can also be costly for individuals, systems of care and justice, and society as a whole. Better understanding of traumatic memory will enhance processes of support and justice and improve outcomes those affected.
