Soon MDMA will be approved as a legal treatment for PTSD, but what about its possibilities for couples therapy? It may seem like a no-brainer, as MDMA is well-known as a heart-opener and as a recreational, celebratory experience of increased compassion and sensuality. Why don’t couples just take Ecstasy together, then? Because MDMA will also bring up whatever is in the way of heart opening, and for some couples, this stuff that has been lurking in the background for years.
In this talk, we will explore MDMA’s potential for couples therapy, the (nearly nonexistent) research, anecdotal evidence, and possible treatment strategies.
