Psychology of the Soul and the Paranormal

Over the last couple years, many people have experienced grief and loss in one form or another. The overwhelming anxiety, fear, and depression surrounding grief and loss can keep a person stuck in negative patterns that affect their entire life. While some people experience deeper levels of these patterns such as addictions, and substance abuse, more and more people are reporting to have had a spiritual experience that has transformed their lives for the better. Rev. Karen E. Herrick, PhD, LCSW, LMSW, CADC, ACMHP, is the author of “Psychology of the Soul and the Paranormal”. She completed her Masters Degree at Rutgers University in Social Work, and PhD at Union Institute and University. She is the founder of the Center for Children of Alcoholics, and has shared her clinical expertise for thirty years in private practice by lecturing on dysfunctional, addictive homes, dissociation, and grief and loss from a Jungian perspective. Her decades of research consist of paranormal experiences that have been widely reported and appear to be fairly common. These phenomena have been the subject of psychical research for well over a century, and their existence is reasonably established. She is currently researching the potential benefits of mediumship, knowing that grief is primarily resolved when the bereaved can recognize their continuing spiritual bonds with the deceased.
