What is an Alien Abduction?
In the dictionary an alien abduction is said to be "subjectively real memories of being taken secretly against one's will by apparently nonhuman entities and subjected to complex physical and psychological procedures".
Are Alien Abductions Real?
Who knows. What I do know is that while mainstream scientists reject claims that the phenomenon literally occurs as reported, there is no doubt that people who report alien abductions believe their experiences are real. And for me, that's all that necessary.
The precise number of abductees is uncertain. One of the earliest studies of abductions found 1,700 claimants, while contested surveys argued that 5% to 6% of the general population might have been abducted.
What is Post Abduction Syndrome?
Post Abduction Syndrome (PAS) refers to a series of symptoms and forms of behavior which develop in relation to alien abduction experience. Often it relates not just to a single abduction event, but to several repeated and on-going events.
What to Expect from this Book
This book is written for anyone interested in the process of recovering hidden or blocked memories of an alien abduction event. I will also discuss the process of dealing with and overcoming the trauma of these events. While the coping and healing sections of the book can be used by anyone who is experiencing the symptoms of PAS, regression therapy should only be attempted by a therapist who is certified for and experienced in these techniques.
The book contains five sections. Parts one, two and three cover the tools used to recover lost, hidden or blocked memories. These are in the way of an educational tool and should never be attempted by anyone who is not specifically trained for them. Parts four and five deal with how to cope with the fallout of these memories and can be used by anyone who is affected by PAS.
The first part is 'Accessing Conscious Memories'. In this section we discuss the first part of any PAS therapy...the initial interview. We discuss using Cognitive Interviewing techniques or CI. CI is used in many applications including law enforcement to assist witnesses and victims in clarifying their memories of an event. In the case of an alien abduction experience this is the first step; to clarify what the abductee already consciously remembers about his or her experience. The CI should only be attempted by an experienced investigator or therapist.
Part two, 'Accessing the Subconscious Mind', is a basic introduction into the science of Hypnosis and a discussion on the ways in which it can be a helpful tool in abduction cases.
In part three, 'Recovering Memories' we will get into the nuts and bolts of regression therapy.
In part four, 'Healing the Trauma' will look at the modalities that can be used to treat PAS. These include hypnosis and guided visualization.
And finally in part five, 'Out of the Darkness', we will go more in-depth into the behaviors an individual can learn to cope with the emotional disturbances associated with an alien abduction experience.
