Psychic research isn’t an oxymoron but it’s so diverse and loosely defined that it’s fertile territory for worldbuilding. In this fast-moving overview of psychic research, Mary will explore:
. Personal research anyone can do, with a discussion of standards from social psychology and other sources
. Astrological research, both from historical searches and from statistical studies
. Research organizations, including brain science and neurolinguistic programming studies
. Psychic research organizations (real and fictional) that document predictions
. Special research-in-action projects such as groups dowsing for water or searching for missing children
. Magical societies and their records or proof of effectiveness
The course provides references to real-world research (both internet and reference books cited) as well as examples from Mary’s personal work. The workshop includes references to best-selling novels that include realistic research societies or methods as part of their world building. The material will be suitable for both paranormal writers and for writers of romantic suspense with psychic or paranormal elem
