tryp Posted March 20, 2009 Share Posted March 20, 2009 [link=http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29779272/" target="_blank]This one[/link] They did this small scale study showing that MDMA helps PTSD patients with stuff like trust and emotional regulation. I thought it was really interesting that they mention that one of the most beneficial effects would be to help patients trust their therapists more easily and form a good therapeutic relationship. I would think that would make it especially applicable to CPTSD. I've read a great deal of journal articles on PTSD, and even though I've always had a suspicion that I find it disproportionately hard to trust therapists, I've never really seen that documented, so I was really interested that the article mentioned it. Although...I have to say that the process of learning to trust my therapist has been one of the most healing parts of therapy. I'm not convinced that chemically making it easier would have been a help in the long run, even though things were hell for about six solid months. I wouldn't want to bombard everyone with news articles or anything - I just thought this one was pretty cool, especially since PTSD is my diagnosis.
