This study examines the aftereffects of near-death experiences as reported by 14 adult near-death experiencers. Additionally, this study provides an initial examination of the relationships between experience components and aftereffects as well the relationships between and among aftereffects. Previous studies have offered a glimpse into the long term effects of having a near-death experience, but a number of these studies contain significant methodological flaws. In an effort to preserve the sanctity of the individual experience at the time of death and the resulting growth form such an experience, a qualitative approach was used. Ultimately, 17 change categories were found and the beginning of a relational model between and among components and aftereffects is offered.
