LSD psychotherapy artwork

Someone’s posted examples of artwork created by patients that were undergoing LSD psychotherapy when it was originally trialled by Stanislav Grof, before research in this area was suspended by panicked world governments when the drug became widely used.

The images are from Grof’s book LSD Psychotherapy, and range from the whimsical, to the abstract, to the terrifying.

The early explorations of using psychedelic drugs in psychotherapy seemed promising but were over far too soon to give a definite answer of whether they helped overcome any mental health or behavioural problems.

It’s only very recently that scientific research into this area has re-started, largely due to the careful work of MAPS – the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies.
