In this forum we will be looking into subject of hauntings, despite the fact that academic literature is not very extensive. Instead of choosing an academic paper to discuss, we have written our own Haunted House Scenario discussion document for your consideration.
This Haunted House Scenario has been complied by Ciaran Farrell. He has done this to illustrate some of the potential archetypal elements in a haunting. The scenario document also contains some suggested questions which hopefully will set the scene wider discussion.
Some additional background reading on the subject of hauntings and haunted house scenarios may be found in an academic paper by Dagnall et al in Frontiers in Psychology:-
