“LSD in psychotherapy”.
Amer. J. Psychother.. 1964;18:35-51.
I wish to present a case of brief psychotherapy in which lysergic acid
diethylamide (LSD-25) was a crucial psychotherapeutic agent. I begin with a survey of the literature on therapeutic work with LSD, then present my own viewpoint and procedure in using the drug. After this, I
give a synopsis of the patient\'s history and treatment-course, stating
my observations of him during the LSD episode and adding his own
subsequent commentary on the meaning of the experience to him. In
the last part of the paper, I discuss the experience of LSD as I have
found it to cast both light and shadow on the psychotherapeutic procems.
