“LSD-Assisted Psychotherapy and Dynamics of Creativity: A Case Report”.
J of Altered States of Consciousness. 1977;3:131-146.
Presented with a brief introduction and conclusion is the report of an LSD-assisted therapeutic intervention by a highly articulate patient who entered psychotherapy to resolve guilt and depression that appeared to inhibit her creativity as a writer. The content of the report may be seen to illustrate the entelechy of the interpersonally-grounded psyche and also an interrelationship between personal-psychodynamic and transpersonal-mystical states of altered consciousness. The report invites consideration of the possible educational relevance of some of the insights experienced by this patient during the period of drug-action for various academic disciplines, such as world literature and philosophy, as well as for psychotherapy.
