Upcoming Workshops:

May 15, 2020, 1:00 pm – 4:15 pm · Portland, OR · Details

Psychedelic assisted therapy is garnering increasing evidence for its effectiveness across a range of psychological conditions and appears poised to have a major impact on mental health treatment in the next decade. This workshop will provide health care professionals an overview of this new clinical area. First, a history of the use of psychedelics will be reviewed that includes an appreciation for their long-standing use by many indigenous cultures. Differences between the most common psychedelics will be outlined, as well as their unique psychological and physical effects. Next, the two major waves of psychedelic research will be summarized, with emphasis on more recent and rigorous clinical trials. The basic model of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy will be explained so that workshop participants will have a better sense of how this treatment works. Read more
