Part 1 of a 3-part series
Research on psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy has mushroomed in the past few years, not only offering possible breakthrough treatments for PTSD, depression, addictions and end-of-life anxiety, but also providing new insights into the nature of psychological distress and the mechanisms of healing.
What can clinicians learn from these investigations? How can they inform our practice if we’re not participating in the research?
In this 3-hour interactive webinar, you’ll learn practical tools and techniques derived from psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy to help clients with a wide-array of disorders. We’ll explore ways to help clients integrate split-off traumatic memories, open their hearts, embrace vulnerability, surrender to the flow of ever-changing experience, move from isolation to deep connection with people and nature, appreciate the unreliable fluidity of thought, and find meaning in everyday moments.
You’ll learn how to use mindfulness and self-compassion practices along with other techniques to harness these healing mechanisms, while also gaining the knowledge necessary to help clients who might be experimenting with psychedelics to integrate and grow from their experiences.
You will learn—
- To identify the common elements in a wide variety of psychological disorders
- How mindfulness practices work to resolve psychological distress
- The role of compassion, and self-compassion in psychotherapeutic progress
- An overview of evidence for efficacy and mechanisms of action in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy
- The role of transpersonal or “mystical” experience in both mindfulness-informed and psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy
- Practical ways to introduce the transformative elements of mindfulness and compassion-informed, and psychedelic-assisted sessions into other forms of psychotherapy
