7 p.m. SPR Lecture – Dr Alejandro Parra – PARANORMAL EVENTS IN A HOSPITAL SETTING - 22 MARCH

 Registration is closed for this event
The aim of the lecture will be about the occurrence of certain unusual perceptual experiences in hospital settings often related by nurses and carers. The most common experiences are sensing a presence and/or apparitions, hearing noises, voices or dialogues, crying or complaining, intuitions and extrasensory experiences and as listeners of experiences of their patients, such as near-death experiences, religious interventions, and many anomalous experiences in relation with children. Nurses reporting these experiences tended to report higher scores of absorption and higher scores of proneness to schizotypy, mainly positive schizotypy (unusual experiences) and tended to report higher cognitive empathy and emotional comprehension than non-experiencers.

Alejandro Parra is a psychologist and therapist, President of the Instituto de Psicologia Paranormal since 2004, and former President of the Parapsychological Association (2011-2013). He serves as a psychotherapist in a general clinical psychological practice in the Clinical Area of the Institute of Paranormal Psychology. He conducts therapy groups and uses an historical approach in his continued research into parapsychology, dreamwork, and mediumship. In a counselling setting, he also conducts workshops with psychics and mediums on their paranormal/spiritual experiences. His clinical research is based on cognitive-experiential and humanistic/Rogerian-oriented approaches with groups of people who have had paranormal experiences and dreams.
