Ghost therapy [bereavement and anomalous experiences]

Cooper, C. (Speaker)

Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsInvited talkResearch

Description

In this talk a variety of exceptional experiences will be explored and their impact on those who encountered them, regardless of the source of the phenomena. For well over 100 years it has been firmly understood that post-death experiences – typically of apparitions – are a common feature of bereavement. Since the 1970s, when related reports entered the British Medical Journal, the research gained respect and understanding amongst the sciences, especially healthcare and bereavement counselling. But what varieties of experiences do people encounter? What is their effect on those who encounter them? All this, and more, shall be discussed.
