Induced After Death Communication (IDAC)

A new therapy discovered by Dr. Allan Botkin, which is used by psychologists as a therapy to reduce trauma, stress and grief, could be a new area for survival-related research. It involves using eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Dr. Botkin revised the EMDR and called it ‘core-focused EMDR.’ Dr. Botkin discovered that during the core-focused EMDR that patients could be induced to have an IDAC by following a specific sequence of events. The IDAC allows people to deal with their grief by enabling them to communicate and reconnect with their dead loved ones. Experiencers feel better about death and the grief is normally resolved.


Experiences during an IADC include:

  • Experiences can be visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory or any combination of these.
  • Seeing the deceased.
  • Seeing the deceased with other deceased relatives.
  • Seeing people not known to have passed away at the time of the experience (Peak in Darien).
  • The deceased can appear as they were when they died, or younger and healthier than they were when they died.
  • Deceased children appear as still young or older.
  • Seeing the ‘spirit’ of the deceased rise from their body when reliving the death during the experience.
  • Communication by telepathy.
  • See the deceased surrounded by light.
  • Experiencers receive unwanted messages and/or information.
  • The deceased relay information to other living people through the experiencer.
  • See pets who have passed away.
  • The passing of time is different.
  • Beautiful landscapes that include bright colors, vividness and projects peace and serenity.


Dr. Botkin has pointed out that IDACs have much in common with NDEs and spontaneous after death communications (ADCs). Even though the paranormal nature of IDACs is uncertain, it does provide yet another avenue for exploring the possibility of life after death.
