Counselling the discarnate and the methodological approach: Comment on Ferreira (2013)

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticle


I was surprised to read the paper by Ferreira (2013) regarding communication with the dead in a distressed state (post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD]) via the author's use of entering an out-of-body state. This paper was produced at the same time I was editing some of the unpublished work of the late Dr. Alex Tanous regarding his research on ghosts and hauntings through the American Society for Psychical Research (Tanous with Cooper, 2013). Both publications and purported psi abilities are linked very closely.
