The Characteristics and Impact of After Death Communications

The Characteristics and Impact of After Death Communications

In the early works and experience of organisations such as this College and the Society for Psychical Research, it was found that experiences of ghosts and apparitions immediately following the death of a person were highly common experiences.

By the 1970s, medical research had begun to acknowledge such experiences for the bereaved, which had a wide-reaching impact on medical research and thanatology. These After Death Communications (ADCs) have been found to be highly beneficial to the bereavement process and are almost exclusively experienced by the bereaved.

However, those who have not suffered personal loss have had spontaneous experiences of the deceased, and some people choose to seek out these experiences via sittings with mediums,for example.

This presentation will discuss the history, phenomenology, and impact of these experiences and where we find ourselves in the current research.
