      Psychotherapy & Addictions Series: Principles & Practices of Psychedelic Psychotherapy

      Psychedelic assisted psychotherapy [PAP] is being actively researched, and may be approved by the DEA and FDA in the next few years. Many patients are taking psychedelics for therapeutic goals in ‘underground’ settings. MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD is in phase 3 trials; Psilocybin-assisted treatment of depression, addictions and trauma is under investigation; Ketamine is approved for use is depression and is being used for a wide range of conditions; Cannabis-assisted therapy is provided in Colorado and may become more commonplace here. We will review PAP’s historical emergence, a consolidation of its cohering principles, and the current manifestations of its practice. We will look at the PAP model in terms of both its novelty and alignment with other psychotherapeutic modalities. We will address the therapeutic potential of non-ordinary states, including those facilitated by Psilocybin, MDMA, Ketamine, and Cannabis. Indications, contra-indications, and current clinical research will be outlined and referenced. Learning Objectives: i. Participants will be able to explain the four guiding principles of set, setting, substance, and skills.ii. Participants will be able to compare similarities and differences between psychedelic-assisted and other therapies.iii. Participants will be able to identify the potential benefits, risks and risks of four different assisting psychedelic substances.
