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 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 is a small-scale symposium to facilitate in-depth interaction and discussion.
This state-of-the-art symposium will showcase the latest clinical evidence on psychedelics in the treatment of mental disorders. Questions that will be discussed include:
- What skills, competencies and knowledge do therapists need? How do we train and educate them?
- Can we apply conventional psychotherapeutic methods to psychedelic-assisted therapies, or are other / novel methods needed?
- What do we know about the neurobiological 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 or are specialized centers required?
