Classification and Statistical Manual of Extrasensory Experiences, 1st Edition: CSM-EE
The Classification and Statistical Manual of Extrasensory Experiences (CSM-EE) is a classification of extrasensory experiences (i.e. telepathy, clairvoyance, mediumship, precognition, synchronistic events, etc.) with associated criteria designed to facilitate more reliable classification. CSM-EE assists in identifying like experiences that are similar in phenomenology, but otherwise widely differ in narrative due to culture, language, and religious/spiritual belief.
Whereby, the CSM-EE can assist in accurate classification and is therefore a valuable resource for clinicians and students, and a valuable reference for researchers, dealing with extrasensory experiences in a wide diversity of context.
The criteria and associated phenomenological features and specifiers serve in part as a textbook for students who require a well-structured method to understand and classify extrasensory experiences as well as for experienced professionals encountering these experiences for the first time.
About the Author: Theresa M. Kelly, MsD. is a professor of scientific parapsychology at the University of Alternative Studies, and a process-orientated psychical researcher focusing on the phenomenology and classification of spontaneous cases resulting from chronic stress and crisis situations.
