Psychedelic-assisted therapy: Ethics and efficacy in context w/ Dr. Tatyana Kholodkov

October 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Participants will receive an introduction to psychedelic assisted psychotherapy, with a focus on ketamine, MDMA, and psilocybin. The talk will include reviewing the historical context of psychedelic work, an overview of research, future directions, and legal issues pertaining to the current state of psychedelic therapy.

Information regarding supporting clients who are interested in therapeutic use of psychedelics will be discussed. Psychedelic-assisted therapy may be bringing a paradigm shift to treatment-resistant depression, substance use disorder, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder; and the integration of these treatments raises ethical issues, which are further complicated by the regulatory and legal landscape.

This workshop invites participants to slow down, be thoughtful, and proceed ethically. Dr. Tatyana Kholodkov will provide a grounding in current knowledge and research about these treatments; important historical context that includes lessons on cross-cultural practices and research omissions and abuses; and competencies and considerations for our role in supporting the healing of vulnerable populations.
