Informasjonskilder for psykedelisk terapi

Selvstudier er en av få måter å tilegne seg kunnskap om psykedelika på, men heldigvis finnes det mye å lese der ute. Mye er fra 60-tallet, da både psykedelika-assistert terapi og forskning var i blomst, men også en del fra senere år. Her er hovedelementene av hva jeg har lest og fått med meg med kommentarer (på engelsk). Favorittene er merket i fet skrift.
