Ever wonder what conclusions clinically trained therapists reach in working with people who claim to have had alien abduction experiences? Want to know more about their opinions and research findings?

As part of its ongoing educational seminar series, the Intruders Foundation (IF) will offer a panel discussion by three professionals in the field of mental health. They are:

* Ted Davis, M.A., M.S.W. and a member of the IF Advisory Committee. Ted will present an illuminating history of various psychological studies of people reporting UFO abductions and their often surprising results.

* Gerald Sunnen, M.D., a psychiatrist with long experience working with UFO abductees. Dr. Sunnen will discuss his own clinical practice and will offer insights into helpful therapeutic methods, as well as common abductee coping strategies.

* Jed Turnbull, M.S.W. and Ph.D. candidate, another member of the IF Advisory Committee, will describe his successful use of the anxiety-reducing therapy known by the initials EMDR, and will also discuss his experience as a practitioner of regressive hypnosis.

* Budd Hopkins, IF‘s Executive Director and a veteran abduction investigator will moderate the panel discussion. He will add remarks about his experience with hypnosis, and he will address some of opinions and recent experimental findings concerning its usefulness and reliability.

This, our last seminar until we resume in September, promises to be an important program. We invite you to come and bring your questions. As always, the seminar will be opened up to full audience participation. This is your chance to learn about UFO abductions from experienced, professional clinicians.


The seminar will be held on May 19th at the meeting rooms of A.R.E., on the tenth floor of 150 W. 28th Street, New York, NY. The price of the seminar is $30 for non-members and $20 for members of IF, seniors, and students. Reservations must be made by telephone at 212-645-5278, and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Payment must be made in advance to secure the reservation. Make checks payable to the Intruders Foundation, P.O. Box 30233, New York, NY 10011. Only 50 reservations will be accepted.

On-street parking is generally available in the neighborhood. The seminar will begin at 7:30 PM and end at 10:00 PM. Doors open at 7:00 PM. There will be a one half-hour intermission, during which light complimentary refreshments will be served. A book table will offer books, videotapes, and other material for sale to those interested.
