How can psychopharmacology help clinicians working in IFS? Explore how psychedelic-assisted therapy can help heal trauma by connecting us to the parts we try to bury.
Psychopharmacology and psychotherapy both have the potential to be revolutionized by psychedelic drugs. One of the ways that psychedelic drugs work is by helping us re-evaluate our habitual sense of self. Under the right conditions, they can connect us to others and to aspects of ourselves that we’ve tried to bury. In this way, they can help heal traumatic wounds.
Psychedelic drugs can help illuminate our attachment to limiting self-images and facilitate life-changing transpersonal experiences. Often, rather than finding one coherent, stable separate self, people discover multiple sub-personalities or parts. And each of these parts has its own history, needs, and injuries.
How might we work with these parts, both in the context of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and in other forms of treatment? Join Dr. Richard Schwartz, developer of Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Dr. Ron Siegel as they explore psychopharmacology and how psychedelic experiences can help us recognize and care for diverse parts of ourselves. They’ll also delve into how IFS methods might enhance and enrich psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy.
In this workshop, you’ll learn how to help clients embrace all their different parts with love, care, and understanding. This in turn can help heal old wounds and free up resources, allowing them to be more fully and flexibly present. This webinar will be useful to clinicians with or without prior experience with either the IFS model, psychedelic drugs, or deep knowledge of psychopharmacology.
You will learn—
- What research into psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy can teach us about mechanisms of psychological healing
- How to recognize, embrace, and communicate with parts or sub-personalities in ourselves and our clients
- Techniques for reducing shame and opening to a full range of thoughts, feelings, images, and memories
- Ways to work effectively with painful or paralyzing self-critical narratives
- Methods to connect with our own, and our clients’, common humanity
- How the transpersonal experiences frequently encountered in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy might be accessed in psychotherapy more broadly
