Induced After-Death Communication (IADC) is a therapeutic technique based on EMDR for helping the bereaved to process and overcome suffering for the death of a loved one. The IADC was discovered and developed in 1995 by the american psychologist Allan Botkin, for his work with veterans of the Vietnam War.

The IADC enables participants to have the joyful experience of observing their dead and even talking to them. This experience allows to experience a "reconnection" between the bereaved and their loved one, which leads, in many cases, the conclusion of the grieving process.

Participants say the presence of the deceased is perceived as very "real", by what many consider the IADC provides access to a truly transcendent or spiritual dimension. Others, however, believe that the experience is the result of some natural function (not yet determined) of the mind or the brain, whose purpose is to enable the resolution of grief. Dr. Botkin does not endure any of both interpretations.
