MDMA-assisted Psychotherapy Research in the 21st Century, A Blossoming of Seeds Planted by Stanislav Grof

We will give an overview of the methods and very promising results of MAPS-sponsored clinical research over the past 17 years using MDMA-assisted psychotherapy to catalyze healing of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We will discuss our therapeutic method, which is heavily influenced by the work and teaching of Stanislav Grof, and will illustrate the nature of the therapeutic process during MDMA-assisted sessions with clinical vignettes and a brief video clip.
