PSYCHEDELIC HARM REDUCTION AND EXPLORATION GROUP

MONDAYS, 5:45-7:00PM

Elizabeth Nielson, PhD

The Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Exploration Group is a psychotherapy group for people who have used psychedelics, or are considering using them, for therapeutic and/or recreational purposes. Given that psychedelics are being tested in clinical trials but are not FDA approved for any indication at this time, this group is for people who wish to explore their own individual and unique relationship to psychedelics including the relative safety and potential helpfulness or harmfulness of using psychedelics, strategies for promoting positive experiences, and minimizing the possibility of negative consequences should they decide to do so on their own. Principles of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy are incorporated into a group process in which participants can explore motivations, intentions, and outcomes of psychedelic use in a safe, supportive environment. Group discussions focus on integrating the profound insights, lessons, and even difficult experiences of psychedelic journeys into one’s broader life. Members are expected to attend this group weekly. To learn more, contact Elizabeth at enielson@cfol.org
