A Variation of EMDR to Facilitate Grief and After Death Communications
With John R Jordan, PhD and César Valdez, LMSW
Recorded April 2018 at ADEC's Annual Conference
An alteration of the standard EMDR protocol shows promise as a method for facilitating grief and inducing an After Death Communication experience. This technique was pioneered by Alan Botkin, Psy.D., an experienced trauma therapist who calls the procedure Induced After Death Communication therapy. In this presentation, two therapists who have been trained by Botkin will present the background and method of the IADC method. They will also show video of a client experiencing the procedure. Discussion of the implications of this new technique for grief therapists who work with traumatized and bereaved clients will also be allowed, time permitting.
