Introduction
Public Health, psychedelic research, and drug science. My focus is transdisciplinary research in the fields of health education and psychoactive drugs, particularly the integrative use of psychedelics. I am also interested in psychotherapy, particularly related to creative methods or psychoactive enhancers of change and self-awareness. I work with qualitative and quantitative methods.

Serotonergic psychedelics such as psilocybin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), or dimethyltryptamine (DMT), as well as psychoactive drugs that trigger phenomenologically- related experiences like 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) and ketamine, belong to the most promising treatment approaches in contemporary psychiatry. Psychedelic-assisted...

This is my main research chapter in our 2008 book on Therapy with Psychoactive Substances. At that time we mainly focussed on the work of a Swiss group called the Schweizerische Ärztevereinigung für Psycholytische Therapie (SÄPT). My qualitative and partly historical work about them resulted in a structured set of topics and "rules" that the therap...

Jedoch wurde die klinische Erforschung durch gesellschaftlich motivierte Verbote lange blockiert und erst in den 1990er-Jahren wieder aufgenommen. Aktuelle Studien zeigen ein starkes Interesse an der Weiterentwicklung der Therapie mit Psychedelika. Ihr poten...
