DECONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM meets professor Charles Grob. Dr. Grob has been the Director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center since 1993. And even for a specialist on mood and anxiety disorders he’s extraordinarily sympathethic and charming. Professor Grob is a believer in the self-medication hypothesis of substance abuse. Which basically means that het hinks that if someone is using or abusing a substance it might be because of a biological or psychological lack that the subject tries to compensate for. He has published in the professional literature on a variety of topics, including adolescent development and psychopathology, cross-cultural models of substance use and misuse and the history of hallucinogens in psychiatry. His research has included the first FDA approved Phase 1 study of the physiological and psychological effects of MDMA, a multi-national, collaborative study of the Amazonian plant hallucinogen decoction, ayahuasca, in Brazil and a pilot investigation of the safety and efficacy of psilocybin in the treatment of anxiety in adult patients with advanced-stage terminal cancer. And on top of everything else he’s an expert on hallucinogenic literature and the author of the book Hallucinogens: a Reader which provides a good overview on the topic in case this discussion prompts you to find out more: https://www.amazon.com/Hallucinogens-Reader-New-Consciousness/dp/1585421669 http://www.harboruclapsych.com/charles-s-grob-m-d/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4XL_Hk_L5g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqTm50Rw0hU Until next, have a good time unit!
