To date, there has been a dearth of work examining the relationships between paranormal
experiences and mental health. After defining paranormal experience and its prevalence,
I examine a number of areas related to paranormal experience and psychopathology: psi
and the unconscious, dissociation and fantasy proneness, schizotypy, transliminality and
reality monitoring, child abuse, reasoning and information processing, and transpersonal
psychology. Finally, I discuss the clinical implications of these findings.
