Service Description

Psychedelic-assisted therapy shows promise as a highly effective form of treatment poised to become a major new form of mental health care. This 4-hour workshop will provide health care professionals with an overview of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, with an emphasis on the importance of preparation and integration. This workshop will help clinicians understand the current state of psychedelic science, as well as to have more informed conversations with clients about psychedelics and their potential risks and benefits, legal status, and timeline for public accessibility. Research developments, including what conditions psychedelic-assisted therapy has the most evidence for, will be described. Leading scientific theories as to how psychedelics exert their therapeutic effects will be discussed, and the current legal status of psychedelics will be reviewed. Diversity and equity issues will be reviewed including lack of access for underserved and non-majority populations and the risks of cultural appropriation involved in modern psychedelic science. We will also provide recommendations on obtaining further training for those who want to learn more.
