We're thrilled to offer our second annual day-long public workshop on psychedelic integration and harm reduction. Presenters will include the co-directors of the Psychedelic Education & Continuing Care Program, Katherine MacLean, PhD and Ingmar Gorman, PhD, as well as special guest, clinical psychologist and psychedelic researcher Alicia Danforth, PhD. Please see the bios below for more information.
This workshop will cover the basics of psychedelic harm reduction, how to differentiate between a psychedelic experience and a potential mental health crisis, and how to provide compassionate, non-intrusive support during the experience and helping the individual make contact with a trusted mental health professional or medical service, if needed. We will also discuss the process of integration, or how the insights and challenges of a psychedelic experience can be incorporated into daily life in a way that benefits the individual and their community.
Dr. Danforth will also provide a side-by-side comparison of media headlines vs. actual findings from clinical research into psychedelics for mental health conditions, and will provide practical guidelines for how you can stay informed while remaining appropriately skeptical of headlines that sound too good to be true.
The workshop agenda will include formal lecture-style presentations, as well as experiential exercises, interpersonal practice with vignettes, and plenty of time for discussion and Q/A.
