Induced After-Death Communication: Unique Benefits In Grief Counseling

Spontaneous after-death communication (ADC)–encounter with a deceased person–is commonly reported in near-death experiences and is reported overall by one in three people. Experiencers who are bereaved almost always report that the experience eased their grief. At an IANDS conference over a decade ago, psychologist Allan Botkin reported on his discovery and development of Induced After-Death Communication (IADC), a counseling technique to facilitate a grieving client to have an experience of ADC with the deceased loved one. We describe the results of the first-ever study of the comparative effects of traditional grief counseling and IADC on grief among adults from the North Texas region. We include case examples and discuss implications for clinical mental health professionals and future researchers.
