Ben Sessa, MD,
is curator and founder of Breaking Convention, a biennial conference in the UK that explores the many facets of psychedelics. Ben has been a consultant and addictions psychiatrist, and now runs the world’s first MDMA study for alcoholism. He’s authored textbooks including The Psychedelic Renaissance and a novel about psychedelics.
In this workshop, we’ll explore the remarkable potential of psychedelics for healing and self-discovery around the world. We will examine current topics of research including the use of MDMA in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and social anxiety disorder among autistic adults. Ketamine will also be in focus as a remedy for treatment-resistant depression and anxiety in the face of terminal illness.
