THE TRUTH ABOUT PSYCHEDELICS - A Live Drug Science Podcast Recording

Wednesday 13 November 2019, 19:00 | CENTRAL LONDON (venue tbc)

The world is entering a new phase of psychiatric treatments.

After the psychotherapy and medical treatment phases in the last century, we are at the start of the phase where we use drugs to assist and empower psychotherapeutic processes.

The origins of this exciting new development are the massive growth of neuropsychopharmacology, particularly in relation to the use of psychedelics (e.g. LSD, Psilocybin) and entactogens (e.g. MDMA).

New research on the impact of these drugs on brain functions show clear impacts on brain processes that contribute to maladaptive behavioural processes.

Parallel research has shown efficacy for psilocybin and MDMA in disorders such as resistant depression and PTSD.

In this first ever live Drug Science podcast recording, Professor Nutt and invted guests will cover these remarkable new developments and show how they may be used more broadly in psychiatry/psychotherapy in the future.

Speakers to include:

Prof David Nutt

Edmond J Safra chair in Neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College London and director of the Neuropsychopharmacology Unit in the Division of Brain Sciences there. Prof Nutt was a member of the Committee on Safety of Medicine, and was President of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology.
