Psychedelics and Psychotherapy: A Historical Workshop
UCL Centre for the History of Psychological Disciplines
26th July 2014

While cultural histories of  psychedelics have become a popular industry, there has been comparatively little work done on the ways in which mind altering substances, such as LSD or psilocybin, have been used by psychiatrists, psychotherapists, and psychologists during the second half of the 20th century. The aim of the workshop is to start a discussion of the various ways in which such compounds have been used within the psy disciplines, as a form of therapy, as tools for psychological exploration, or as theoretical catalysts for various models of the mind.
