Providing Care for Near-Death and Related Experiencers: IANDS 2021 Spring Symposium
Research shows that in at least one-fifth of near-death experiencers’ most memorable episodes of disclosing their NDE to a healthcare provider, family member, or friend, the experiencer came away feeling harmed. This finding was consistent across all categories of healthcare providers and was as applicable for NDEs that occurred in the 1940s as the 2010s.
A question for anyone is: Might you unknowingly be doing harm in the way you respond to people who’ve had near-death or related experiences—such as after-death communication or past-life memories?
The purpose of this one-day symposium was for anyone—professional or layperson—to complete the day feeling confident that they know how to fulfill their professional ethical and personal moral responsibility to do no harm to near-death and related experiencers. Contributors included healthcare providers (medical, mental, social, and spiritual) and a bioethicist who described evidence-based and ethical best practices in responding to NDE disclosure. They also included experiencers’ family members and friends, as well as experiencers themselves who revealed their best and worst experiences of disclosure and offered their most important advice about how others can avoid harm and increase help to those touched by near-death and related experiences.
