About Induced ADC’s

After years of a growing number of psychotherapists inducing ADC’s with thousands of patients, we have come to these profound conclusions:

We can very rapidly, reliably, and easily induce an IADC® in about 75% of people who go through the induction.1 (See required conditions at the end of this page.)

Many patients report the same experiences described by people who have had a near-death experience (NDE) or after-death communication (ADC), although we suggest that the experience of feeling a reconnection is the critical activity, without implying the source of the perception.

IADC® therapy offers a method of relieving the prolonged suffering of millions of people. Consistent clinical observations indicate that IADC® therapy heals the deep sadness associated with a friend or loved one’s death, and the results hold up over time.

This promising new approach awaits independent, controlled scientific studies such as those planned by Professor Jan Holden at North Texas University.

The therapy method also provides researchers with a psychological event sufficiently similar to NDE’s and ADC’s to use in understanding the nature of these phenomena and why they so dramatically relieve people’s grief. And while IADC® therapy is unusual and will continue to be controversial until it becomes commonly used, anyone who wishes to verify its efficacy may explore the method at will, just by engaging in a session with a qualified therapist and experiencing an IADC® firsthand.

Therapists trained in the use of EMDR and IADC® are available now for sessions and more are being trained.
