John,

You make excellent points. I think there needs to be a
distinction made between research and investigation. Those are
two different things in my book and one person, IMO, can't
objectively do both. Not easily anyway.

Research, IMO, is best left to the professional, such as a
medical professional. However, investigation could be done by a
ufologist. These two factions would have to work together and the
needs of the 'client' would come before any investigation.

I think that what you are trying to accomplish is admirable.

Someone commented about agnotisticism recently. I am agnostic on
abductions. I don't know what is behind the phenomenon. However,
I image, as in any field, there are abductees who are telling the
truth, some who are lying for whatever reason, and some who might
be ill. There could even be some abductees who have all of those
facets in their character as well.

Anyone who is not a medical professional or under the direct
supervision of a medical professional should not be performing
hypnosis on abductees. Hypnosis is, IMO, just like you said --
playing with someone's mind.

I like the idea of going to one's family physician. Who better to
assess the health, mentally and/or physically, of a patient?  I
would think that with the support that abductees tend to lend one
another, the task of going to the family physician could be made
easier.

I think you have a fantastic idea John and one that is really
needed. The phenomenon is never going to be understood, if it is
left up to artists and carpenters to do the "research."

Best of luck to you John.

Rebecca
