Of all the disorders for which psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy research shows promise, the most dramatic results to date are found with trauma therapy treatment.

In fact, a Phase III study using MDMA for serious trauma has yielded remarkable results. Reductions in symptoms greatly surpassed what has been seen with other interventions.

How does psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy work to resolve trauma? What are the mechanisms of action this type of trauma therapy illuminates? How can clinicians working in other modalities harness these mechanisms to enhance treatment? How might we cultivate the attitudes that are effective in psychedelic-assisted work without pharmacological assistance?

Join Dr. Bessel Van der Kolk, one of the world’s leading authorities on trauma therapy, and Dr. Ron Siegel, as they explore these questions.

You’ll learn how to help clients safely open to experiences that have been pushed out of awareness to heal trauma. This webinar will be useful to clinicians with or without prior experience in either trauma treatment or psychedelic-assisted therapy.

Learning Objectives

You will learn—

  • What research into psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy can teach us about mechanisms of trauma and its resolution
  • How to help clients reintegrate split-off experiences in a way that avoids retraumatization
  • Techniques for enhancing safety inside and outside of the clinical hour
  • Ways to help clients regulate their nervous system’s response to traumatic memories
  • How the holding provided by transpersonal experiences frequently encountered in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy might be accessed in psychotherapy more broadly
