There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that psychedelics can be used safely and effectively to treat mental disorders, including depression, PTSD, and substance use disorders.
During this one-day symposium, leading psychiatrists, psychotherapists, neuroscientists, and psychopharmacologists in the field of psychedelic-assisted therapies will share the latest scientific developments and insights into the therapeutic use of psychedelics, and discuss the future of treatment and research with MDMA, psilocybin, LSD and other compounds.
This state-of-the-art symposium will showcase the latest clinical evidence on psychedelics in the treatment of mental disorders and will facilitate in-depth interaction and discussion.

CONFIRMED ISPPP SPEAKERS
Some of the questions that will be discussed at ISPPP
- What skills, competencies and knowledge do therapists need and how do we train them?
- What do we know about the neuro-biological and psychological working mechanisms of these substances?
- What is the role of treatment context, music, and integration sessions in establishing (long-term) clinical outcomes?
- Can psychedelic-assisted treatments be integrated into conventional mental health care infrastructures?
- Can we apply conventional psycho-therapeutic methods to psychedelic-assisted therapies or are novel methods needed?
This was the original programme - a new version will posted online as soon as we have confirmed which speakers will be able to attend in person and whom will attend via video-conferencing.
