Demonic Possession – Distinguishing the Real from the Imagined

Our culture has a fascination with the paranormal. But how do we distinguish between reality and unreality when it comes to these things unseen? Dr Richard Gallagher is a psychiatrist who has devoted his career to investigating possessions, diabolic attacks, and the paranormal. He joins us with what he has discovered over the last 25 years of looking at demonic foes. 

Dr. Richard Gallagher is Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at New York Medical College and a faculty member of the Psychoanalytic Institute of Columbia University. Dr. Gallagher is the longest-standing American member of the International Association of Exorcists since its founding in the early 1990s.
