Overview

Induced After Death Communication (IADC) is a therapy for grief and trauma that has helped thousands of people come to terms with their loss by allowing them the experience of private communication with their departed loved ones. This is the definitive book on the subject.

Botkin, a clinical psychologist, created the therapy while counseling Vietnam veterans in his work at a Chicago area VA hospital. Botkin recounts his initial--accidental--discovery of IADC during therapy sessions with Sam, a Vietnam vet haunted by the memory of a Vietnamese girl he couldn't save. During the session, quite unexpectedly, Sam saw a vision of the girl's spirit, who told him everything was okay; she was at peace now. This single moment surpassed months--years--of therapy, and allowed Sam to reconnect with his family.

Since that 1995 discovery, Botkin has used IADC to successfully treat countless patients--the book includes dozens of case examples--and has taught the procedure to therapists around the country.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The truth is, once I began reading the manuscript I could not put the book down! It is my view that Dr. Allan Botkin has made a major breakthrough in the treatment of those suffering from the emotional consequences of loss and grief." -Rev. Dr. Ralph S. Leonard, Vice President Emeritus for Church Relations, Carthage College, Kenosha, Wisconsin

"Dr. Botkin has hit upon a fascinating and powerful new tool that may not only help clients cope with their losses, but also breaks new ground in understanding life and death." -Bruce Greyson, M.D., Professor of Psychiatric Medicine, University of Virginia, School of Medicine; Editor, Journal of Near-Death Studies

"There have been very few major breakthroughs in the field of psychology in the last hundred years, and Dr. Allan Botkin has certainly achieved one of them. His discovery has implications that go well beyond clinical practice." -Alan L. Strand

"Induced After Death Communication: A Miraculous Therapy for Grief and Loss is an authentic and believable story of Dr. Botkin's groundbreaking discovery of a new and very powerful treatment of grief. But even more than that, the book provides readers with a whole new way of thinking about and experiencing our relationships and our lives. The book offers hope and comfort, and a new kind of peace of mind.

The book is written in a compelling style that makes it difficult to put down and leaves you hungry for more. This is not only a book for psychologists and psychotherapists, but for all people who seek to understand the meaning of life, and death." -Linda Harper
