Watch Doblin educate the audience in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, about topics including MAPS-sponsored clinical trials of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy…
for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the future of psychedelic medicine, and how psychedelics can shift the field of mental health.
“Humanity now is in a race between catastrophe and consciousness. The psychedelic renaissance is here to help humanity to triumph,” explains Doblin. The full transcript of this landmark presentation is available on the TED website.
“Could psychedelics help us heal from trauma and mental illnesses? Researcher Rick Doblin has spent the past three decades investigating this question, and the results are promising. In this fascinating dive into the science of psychedelics, he explains how drugs like LSD, psilocybin and MDMA affect your brain — and shows how, when paired with psychotherapy, they could change the way we treat PTSD, depression, substance abuse and more.”
