Event description

Description

The use of psychedelics as therapeutic catalysts for emotional and spiritual transformation is now being rediscovered. Psychedelic therapy today is in a new renaissance. There are currently several clinical trials being conducted by established institutions in the UK, including Imperial College and King's College, which are now investigating the use of psychedelics in mental health care, and as cutting edge tools to probe the neurobiology of consciousness.

With mental health generally in decline and rates of depression, anxiety, suicide, addiction, and other psychological disorders skyrocketing, psychedelics may trigger a paradigm shift in mental health care.

Delegates will hear first-hand from scientists working at Imperial College about their new trial directly comparing psilocybin therapy with a conventional antidepressant drug in patients with depression.

This event will also explore the potential therapeutic application of various psychedelic substances, which include MDMA, LSD, mescaline, psilocybin and DMT as potential treatments in clinical psychiatry.

Although psychedelic assisted therapy is currently not possible outside of clinical trials due to the medical and legal status of these substances, psilocybin and MDMA are likely to be licensed for use in the next few years and psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy is expected to be a reality again soon within national healthcare.

Due to the resurgence of the use of these substances there is a growing need for psychotherapists to integrate psychedelic experiences into their practice and help patients managing their re-surfaced trauma, difficult psychedelic episodes and spiritual experiences. This event will help psychotherapists navigate the clinical, ethical and cultural issues around the use psychedelics.
