In anticipation of FDA approval and medicalization, many clinicians have jumped at the opportunity to be trained in these modalities and others are interested in learning more, but many questions remain unanswered around the current policy landscape, changes needed to welcome these medicines into our current healthcare system and in psychotherapy. This goal of this session is to provide clinicians with an overview of the history and current state of psychedelic policy and the implications for clinicians interested in practicing psychedelic-assisted therapy.
