Graham Maxey is a grief and loss counselling professional who specializes in a somewhat under-the-radar technique known as Induced After Death Communication or IADC. The technique was developed by retired psychologist Dr Allan Botkin who discovered its effects after readjusting the procedure of EMDR (Eye Moment Desensitization and Reprocessing), a form of therapy proven very effective in dealing with trauma and other mental conditions.
In this episode we take a look at the technique and its implications on modern psychotheraputic processes. IADC is perhaps one of the most consistently successful forms of therapy I have heard of, with early implementation trials (performed by Allan Botkin himself) giving a >90% probability of the client connecting with their deceased loved ones (or having that experience at least). After the process was made public, this figure dropped to around 75-80%, indicating that expectation can prove detrimental to establishing a connection, or suggests at the least that the mind can act as a barrier to the experience. However, IADC as a therapy seems to be one of the most healing forms of therapy available, with almost all clients reporting a miraculous decrease in the amount of stress and suffering they experience.
This seems to certainly be a technique that should be promoted more into the mainstream practices of psychotherapy, especially within the field of grief, so that we can study and learn more about the effectiveness and efficiency of IADC, and where it can be brought into common application.
