Samenvatting

Embracing the revival of psychedelic research and the discovery of new therapeutic uses, clinical psychologist Dr. Richard Louis Miller discusses what is happening today in psychedelic medicine--and what will happen in the future--with top researchers and thinkers in this field, including Rick Doblin, Stanislav Grof, James Fadiman, Julie Holland, Dennis McKenna, David Nichols, Charles Grob, Phil Wolfson, Michael and Annie Mithoefer, Roland Griffiths, Katherine MacLean, and Robert Whitaker. Dr. Miller and his contributors cover the tumultuous history of early psychedelic research brought to a halt 50 years ago by the U.S. government as well as offering non-technical summaries of the most recent studies with MDMA, psilocybin, LSD, and ayahuasca. They explore the biochemistry of consciousness and the use of psychedelics for self-discovery and healing. They discuss the use of psilocybin for releasing fear in the terminally ill and the potential for MDMA-assisted psychotherapy in the treatment of PTSD. They examine Dr. Charles Grob's research on the indigenous use and therapeutic properties of ayahuasca and Dr. Gabor Mate's attempt to transport this plant medicine to a clinical setting with the help of Canada's Department of National Health. Dr. Miller and his contributors explore the ongoing efforts to restore psychedelic therapies to the health field, the growing threat of overmedication by the pharmaceutical industry, and the links between psychiatric drugs and mental illness. They also discuss the newly shifting political climate and the push for new research, offering hope for an end to the War on Drugs and a potential renaissance of research into psychedelic medicines around the world.

Recensie(s)

Psychedelic Medicine is a fascinating book published at exactly the right moment--when there is more psychedelic psychotherapy research than any other time in the last 50 years. This book is an excellent introduction for those who want to better understand the emergence of psychedelic psychotherapy. * Rick Doblin, PhD, executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies * An amazing and inspiring read. Dr. Miller has cultivated provocative conversations with luminaries in the field of psychedelic research as well as some solid criticism of modern psychiatry. * Julie Holland, MD, editor of The Pot Book and Ecstasy: The Complete Guide * Fascinating conversations between a veteran explorer of altered states of consciousness and many of the leading lights in a new wave of research into psychedelic-assisted therapy. Brings together the science and spirituality of the entheogenic revival. * Don Lattin, author of Changing Our Minds: Psychedelic Sacraments and the New Psychotherapy * Lively, in-depth, and insightful interviews with both pioneering and contemporary members of the psychedelic research community. An excellent introduction to many of the themes and figures involved in the recent resurgence of clinical studies with these drugs. * Rick Strassman, MD, author of DMT: The Spirit Molecule * We love Dr. Richard Miller's perceptive, up-close-and-personal interviews with the courageous pioneers of the psychedelic renaissance. Psychedelic Medicine is a treasure trove of insights into psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy's well-documented ability to facilitate lasting healing and life-changing mystical experience. * Jerry and Julie Brown, coauthors of The Psychedelic Gospels * Imagine that you could ask almost every noteworthy psychedelic researcher not only to discuss their work in depth outside of the jargon of heavy journal descriptions but also to discuss the implications of their work and where it will be going in the future. Imagine an interviewer that knows the research backward and forward and presses each person to think in new directions. It's all there in Psychedelic Medicine. I have been hoping for some years that there would be a book that I could point to that includes almost everything that's going on. This is as close as we're likely going to get. I'm in the book as well which is why I can attest to Miller's knowledgeable and invaluable questioning. * James Fadiman, PhD, microdose researcher and author of The Psychedelic Explorer's Guide *
