 IANDS, in affiliation with the Association for Spiritual, Ethical, and Religious Values in Counseling, presents
Providing Care for Those Touched by Near-Death and Related Experiences:
Ethical Best Practices
Friday, April 30, 2021 (11:00 am - 8:45 pm EDT)  l  $75

Research shows that at least in 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 is 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. Join us to hear experiencers, healthcare providers, and family and friends reveal their best and worst experiences of disclosure and offer their most important advice about how others can avoid harm and increase help to those touched by near-death and related experiences.

All the details will be forthcoming in the next few weeks, including registration, schedule, and presenter’s information, will be available here and at isgo.iands.org. We will also send out email notifications as soon as we have all the details. Below is an informational flyer with just some of the presenters!

Resources for Closing the Gap in Medical Care for NDErs

VOICES Close the Gap Resources
Those who have a near-death experience struggle with sharing this information with their healthcare providers, family members, and others. Some struggle to make sense of the experience, mainly if they are unaware that others have reported similar accounts. Though it’s challenging to explain near-death experiences scientifically, they happen to millions of people and often leave individuals profoundly changed for the remainder of their lives. Studies have found that 10 – 20% of people who are resuscitated after nearly dying have an out-of-body experience accompanied by various perceptions such as traveling through a tunnel of light, feeling loved, or being received by deceased loved ones. Most NDEs are highly positive experiences, but a percentage describe a negative experience, which can be traumatizing to patients.
