Based on what may well be the most intensive psychotherapy with subjects who have trauma from life-threatening illnesses (LTI), with MDMA experiences as a fundamental part of the process, a new entity is defined—PTSD-LTI.
The diverse phenomena of this trauma are presented along with proposed criteria for making the diagnosis. A framework for successful treatment is included. With a rapidly increasing population of survivors due to modern medicine’s successes, many of them traumatized by the effects of treatment on mind as well as body, it is essential that prevention of this trauma and its treatment be provided along with medical interventions. Delineation of the effects on practitioner awareness and the provision of psychotherapy is provided.
