Welcome to the podcast of ALPS, the conference that wants to make us aware of psychedelic science and its effects on the psyche. A whole program with many speakers from Switzerland, Europe and all over the world.
In this episode, @syde welcomes Peter Gasser, DR. MD, psychiatrist and psychotherapist working in his own practice in Solothurn (Switzerland).
Peter was trained in psychodynamic methods as well as in psychedelic therapy. He has been a member of the Swiss Medical Society for Psycholytic Therapy (SAePT) since 1992 and its president since 1996. After 2007, he conducted two studies on LSD-assisted therapy with patients suffering from anxiety, due to life-threatening illnesses. Since then he has held individual licences from the Swiss Government Office for Public Health (BAG) for therapy with mind-altering substances.
Questions asked to Peter:
- How did you start on this journey ? Why?
- What are the key findings of all your studies ?
- What are your experiences working with the Swiss government ?
- What are your hopes for the future in psychedelic research ?
