Rationale and Considerations for Proposed Near-Death Research in the Hospital Setting

Rationale and Considerations for Proposed Near-Death Research in the Hospital Setting

Date: Autumn 1988
Creator: Holden, Janice Miner
Description: Abstract: Further research into the question of veridical perception during the "naturalistic" near-death out-of-body experience (nND OBE), that phase of the near-death experience in which the experiencer seems to be perceiving a normal earthly realm, would be of value to NDErs, their caregivers, and humanity in general. I propose a research procedure that targets visual perception during nND OBEs that occur in the hospital setting. I discuss unresolved issues in the design and implementation of such a procedure, and identify further areas of research.

Thanatoperience

Thanatoperience

Date: Autumn 1988
Creator: Tien, Stephen Slade
Description: Abstract: Near-death experiences (NDEs) can be seen as special cases of psychological transition. They often involve a deep transformation in the sense of self. I examine the NDE as such, according to my phase theory of transition, and I analyze an NDE with the help of that theory. I conclude that the study of NDEs may provide insight into the general psychology of transition.

Ego, Moral, and Faith Development in Near-Death Experiencers: Three Case Studies

Ego, Moral, and Faith Development in Near-Death Experiencers: Three Case Studies

Date: Winter 1988
Creator: Newsome, Rosalie D.
Description: Study examining relationships between three near-death experiencers' (NDErs) levels of moral, ego, and faith development, as measured by standardized instruments, and extensive qualitative data describing their NDEs and personal attributes. The results suggest that currently available instruments, designed to measure the lower self, may not reflect the awakening to a transpersonal plane of functioning that follows an NDE.

Visual Perception During Naturalistic Near-Death Out-of-Body Experiences

Visual Perception During Naturalistic Near-Death Out-of-Body Experiences

Date: Winter 1988
Creator: Holden, Janice Miner
Description: Study attempting to ascertain the most appropriate content and placement of visual stimuli in a hospital-based study of the veridicality of out-of-body perception in the near-death experience (NDE), and the likelihood that a subject in such a study would notice, clearly perceive, and accurately recall a visual stimulus.

Community Attitudes Toward Near-Death Experiences: An Australian Study

Community Attitudes Toward Near-Death Experiences: An Australian Study

Date: Spring 1989
Creator: Kellehear, Allan & Heaven, Patrick
Description: Abstract: In an Australian survey of community attitudes toward near-death experiences (NDEs), 173 respondents were asked to read a hypothetical description of an NDE and to select from a range of explanations that might approximate their own. Fifty-seven percent of the respondents believed the NDE was evidence of life after death, while less than 2 percent believed the NDE was a sign of mental illness. Women, younger persons, and those who professed a belief in life after death were more likely to react positively to the NDE described.

Unexpected Findings in a Study of Visual Perception During the Naturalistic Near-Death Out-of-Body Experience

Unexpected Findings in a Study of Visual Perception During the Naturalistic Near-Death Out-of-Body Experience

Date: Spring 1989
Creator: Holden, Janice Miner
Description: Study of visual perception during the naturalistic near-death out-of-body experience (nND OBE), that aspect of the NDE in which the experiencer seems to view normal physical surroundings from a vantage point outside the physical body, which yielded some unexpected findings that contradicted or augmented previous research. Each of these findings is discussed relative to previous research and analyzed in light of the limitations of the current study.

Clinical Approaches to the Out-of-Body Experience

Clinical Approaches to the Out-of-Body Experience

Date: Autumn 1989
Creator: Twemlow, Stuart W.
Description: Abstract: The author reviews aspects of the out-of-body experience (OBE) related to psychic experiences and personality traits, and describes a continuum of experiences of altered mind/body perception, from the prototypical OBE on the healthy end to schizophrenia and organic brain syndromes on the other end. The impact of the OBE on the individual's life is described, with suggestions for a psychoeducational approach to the clinical management of the patient with an OBE to allow maximum growth from the consciousness-expanding effects of the experience.
