Editorial Reviews

Review

“Although books on psychedelics abound, volumes like The Psychedelic Renaissance show how the field is now addressing the substance of findings from recent research rather than the legions of case reports and anecdotes … Sessa enthusiastically progresses his account of the potential of psychedelic drugs into spirituality and creativity, bringing his unique clinical background to consider concepts too often neglected in psychiatric illness.” ― The Lancet

About the Author

Ben Sessa is a NHS Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist working in Tauton, Somerset, United Kingdom with children and young people with a range of severe mental disorders. He trained in medicine at University College London and is a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Always the perfect gift
