Join this FREE, 60-minute online webinar to gain access to insights and learn about ground breaking treatments to chronic mental health conditions.
Join this FREE WEBINAR presented by Dr Rick Doblin PhD (USA), Founder and Executive Director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS).
Science has shown psychedelic medicines offer healing, resilience and comfort where there seemed to be none. The Food and Drug Administration has named them “breakthrough therapies” for mental health conditions that lack effective treatments. Indigenous communities have known their benefits for centuries, but legal restrictions have stripped them of their rites and remedies. With over 120 current and recent trials for psychedelic-assisted therapies we are seeing a renaissance in this field.
This webinar will answer the following questions:
- Where are we now and what are the next steps to ensure these medicines become available as soon as possible?
- Can psychedelics benefit those not helped by modern medicine?
- Could they help political rivals find common ground and work together to build a better future?
- Can their benefits be accessed equitably, without leaving vulnerable groups behind and reinforcing patterns of oppression and exploitation?
- Can they revitalize the economy by creating new industries? Can they offer a model for harm reduction that could help address the opioid epidemic and other addictions?

More about medicinal psychedelic treatments:
Psychedelic-assisted treatments offer enormous potential in providing a meaningful alternative to current treatments for mental illness. PTSD is a debilitating condition that affects tens of millions of people worldwide, with many more trauma victims diagnosed with comorbid conditions such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders. In recent clinical trials, MDMA has been shown to produce reliable clinical improvements, restoring patient safety and self-agency even for individuals who have suffered with PTSD for many years, and for whom many treatments have failed.
The wave of clinical psychedelic research and regulatory support is rapidly building, with experts forecasting the availability of psychedelic-assisted treatments in the US and EU within the next 2 to 5 years, subject to positive clinical outcomes in large trials that are currently underway.
Dr Rick Doblin (USA)
Rick Doblin, Ph.D., is the founder and executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). He received his doctorate in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where he wrote his dissertation on the regulation of the medical uses of psychedelics and marijuana and his Master’s thesis on a survey of oncologists about smoked marijuana vs. the oral THC pill in nausea control for cancer patients.
His undergraduate thesis at New College of Florida was a 25-year follow-up to the classic Good Friday Experiment, which evaluated the potential of psychedelic drugs to catalyze religious experiences. He also conducted a thirty-four year follow-up study to Timothy Leary’s Concord Prison Experiment. Rick studied with Dr. Stanislav Grof and was among the first to be certified as a Holotropic Breathwork practitioner. His professional goal is to help develop legal contexts for the beneficial uses of psychedelics and marijuana, primarily as prescription medicines but also for personal growth for otherwise healthy people, and eventually to become a legally licensed psychedelic therapist. He founded MAPS in 1986, and currently resides in Boston with his wife and empty rooms from three children who are all in college or recently graduated.
