Psychedelic Drug Treatments: Assisting the Therapeutic Process.


Psychedelic Drug Treatments: Assisting the Therapeutic Process

Ben Sessa and Eileen Worthley

Mercury Learning and Information


141 pages



Citing the irrefutability of the benefits to neuroscience research of the study into the effects on the brain of psychedelic drugs, Sessa and Worthley discuss the history of earlier research into psychedelics before the ban in the 1970s, and look at the possibility of a reprise of interest in developing these drugs as aides to clinical therapy. They aim to provide understanding of psychedelics as tools for the therapeutic process and to challenge longstanding prejudices against researching their possible beneficial effects. Thirteen chapters are divided into four parts: an introduction to psychotropic and psychedelic drugs; a brief history of research efforts; current research; the future of psychedelics.
