Description

Today there’s growing interest in the use of psychedelic substances, once considered therapeutically off-limits, in the clinical treatment of PTSD, depression, addictions, and a range of other conditions.

The principles on which these healing pathways are based have been shown to be validated by psychoneuroimmunology and interpersonal neurobiology.

This workshop recording will look at the distinctive experiences of both clients and therapists that psychedelics can facilitate.
