What's the talk about?

Certain paranormal claims and practices may be explained by suggestion and suggestibility. This presentation examines a number of these that are associated with a particular kind of suggestibility known as the ideomotor effect.

They include dowsing, various forms of communication with 'the spirit world', and some unusual therapeutic practices.  These will be illustrated with several brief video presentations. There will be a demonstration of dowsing and at the end of the evening all those attending should be able to dowse.

Michael is a clinical & forensic psychologist and is the Chairman and co-founder of the Association for Skeptical Enquiry (ASKE)
