Event description

Description

This event is part of the 2017-2018 Charleston Jung Society lecture series.

In their lecture, our guest speakers will offer a brief overview of 14 years of clinical research using MDMA(“Ecstasy”)-assisted Psychotherapy for treating PTSD. Attendees will be exposed to the purpose, method and powerful results of the six completed clinical trials of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy. They will also have the opportunity to see video clips from research sessions illustrating the remarkable degree to which MDMA catalyzes awareness and exploration of shadow material and archetypal imagery.

Annie Mithoefer, BSN is a Grof certified Holotropic Breathwork Practitioner and is trained in Hakomi Therapy. She and her husband, Michael, completed the first phase 2 clinical trial of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD in 2009 and a subsequent study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD in military veterans, firefighters and police officers, both sponsored by The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). They are now leading trainings in MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for therapists interested in working on clinical trials, providing FDA-approved MDMA sessions for research therapists, and collaborating on a study with couples receiving MDMA-assisted psychotherapy in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioral Conjoint Therapy for PTSD.
