The NDE and the Military
Diane Corcoran, R.N., Ph.D., C.L.N.C.
Individual who have Near-Death experiences have
after effects that may be difficult to deal with under normal
circumstances. However, soldiers who have these same issues
are often in environments that they have little control over and
can't just stop what they are doing and choose to do other
things. They may very well have to go fight again and hurt
other people and do things that may be very upsetting to
them. It is therefore very important that military providers
be familiar with the after effects and the integration process so
they can assist military experiencers in their efforts to integrate
the NDE into their life and their current military mission.
Ms. Corcoran has had a distinguished military career spanning 25
years during which she earned her PhD. During her military
service in Vietnam, Ms. Corcoran was introduced to the Near-Death
Experience. Since then she has worked to educate healthcare
professionals and lay communities on the Near-Death
Experience. She is a founding member of IANDS and has served
as a member of the Board of Directors as well as President.
Currently she is researching veterans who have had a Near-Death
Experience in combat. Ms. Corcoran has lectured nationally
and internationally and has published several articles on NDEs.
