Clinical Psychologist and after-death researcher discusses powerful treatment which releases patients from grief. Author of
"Induced After-death Communication: A New Therapy for Healing Grief And Trauma"
Over the last fifteen years Dr. Botkin has been experimenting with
variations of a new and very powerful psychological procedure called
eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). He discovered that
one variation of this procedure results in an experience that nearly all
patients believe is actual communication with the deceased---regardless
of their prior beliefs.
This is a new, cutting edge technique in which a near-death-like state
is induced which allows someone who is grieving to meet with the
deceased on the other side and have an interactive conversation which
heals their grief. This process can take as little as 10 minutes and can
sometimes heal the grief of those who have been in therapy for years. As
of today, Dr Botkin and his colleagues have induced well over 3000 ADCs
(After Death Communications).
Dr. Allan Botkin has been a practicing psychologist since 1983. He
recently retired from being a clinical psychologist at the VA Medical
Center in North Chicago, Illinois, where he developed the Intensive
Trauma Program (ITP), which preliminary studies indicate is one of the
most effective in the country.1 He is now devoting his energy to his
private practice in Libertyville, IL, and to speaking on this subject
throughout the country.
Dr. Botkins expertise in his specialty has long been respected by the
psychotherapeutic community, as indicated by the publication of Case
studies of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) with
chronic post-traumatic stress disorder in the journal,
<i>Psychotherapy, </i>by Lipke and Botkin (1992). His most recent
article The Induction of After-Death Communications Utilizing
Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: A New Discovery,
appeared in the<i> Journal of Near-Death Studies, </i> Vol. 18, No. 3,
He holds a Psy.D in clinical psychology from Baylor University, an M.A.
