New Video from IANDS: Understanding Veterans’ Near-Death Experiences – a Gap in Care
The new video DVD, Understanding Veterans’ Near-Death Experiences, is NOW ON SALE on the IANDS website (($24.95 IANDS members, $29.95 non-members). Service members who have had an NDE should be assisted by medical personnel or chaplains trained to deal with those who have experienced NDEs* Helps relieve Veterans’ anxieties
Injured soldiers having had Near Death Experiences (NDEs) awaken in the hospital traumatized, in pain and often confused and very emotional about experiences they do not understand. Recalling vivid memories of being out of their bodies and visiting transcendent realms. They seek answers to their many questions, hoping for comfort and support. When their questions go unanswered or are casually dismissed, they withdraw emotionally and do not discuss their NDE further, leaving them in an emotional limbo.
However, because of lack of training, that care is often not available, and the impact of this crucial gap of care can be great. It is traumatizing, exacerbating the effects of already devastating injuries, as well as PTSD, and magnifying feelings of confusion, fear, isolation and hopeless despair. Veterans may carry these feelings for a lifetime. This new IANDS-sponsored Veterans’ NDE Training Video provides answers.
