Clinical Consultation & Reading and Study Groups

Clinical Consultation Groups provide a rich and unique experience in which small groups of trainees meet weekly with experienced trainers to learn from their own and each others’ clincal work. Participatns present case examples and scenerios, discuss application of theory and practicual solutions, and build a supprrtive professional network. Reading and Study Groups offer a deep-dive into selected, relevant literature from a variety of diciplines spanning psychology, psychiatry, anthropoloby, history, sociology, and medicine. Trainees come together in small groups with an experienced trainer for weekly meetings to discuss the readings and their implications for clinical practice, research, and the field.  The Reading and Study Groups will have a syllabus with readings that participants will be expected to read prior to each discussion group meeting. All groups in this category are by application only, and will maintain the same membership for their duration.

The programs include Clinical Consultation Groups, Integrating Psychedelics with Evidence-Based Therapy, Integration Essentials, Psychedelics and Psychoanalysis, Psychedelics Psychopharmacology, and Psychological Approaches to Psychedelic Therapy.

Clinical Consultation Groups

Small groups of psychedelic integration and/or psychedelic-assisted therapy practitioners meet with an experienced lead or assisting trainer for advanced learning opportunities. These closed groups meet online and are open to licensed clinicians who have previously attended Psychedelics Integration: Premise and Promise or Understanding Ketamine.

Upcoming Events

Integrating Psychedelics with Evidence-Based Therapy

This reading and study group will include coverage of several different evidenced-based therapies (e.g., ACT, MI, CBT, PE, DBT), several types of psychedelics (e.g., psilocybin, ayahuasca, MDMA, ibogaine), and a variety of clinical populations (e.g., depression, social anxiety, addiction).

Upcoming Events

No events scheduled.

Integration Essentials

A 14-week course with a diverse and challenging set of readings aimed toward deepening each student’s understanding of psychedelic therapy.

Upcoming Events

Psychedelics and Psychoanalysis

This 12-week course uses contemporary and historical sources to teach the numerous ways psychoanalysis and psychedelics have been, and are, involved with one another. We hope, also, to sketch out a roadmap deepening this important affiliation. This course is for more advanced students who possess basic clinical and theoretical knowledge of psychoanalysis, as well as having basic information regarding psychedelic therapy.

Upcoming Events

Psychedelics Psychopharmacology

This group is ideal for clinicians, graduate students, researchers, or the public, so long as they have training or interest in the biological responses that may influence the efficacy and safety of psychedelic therapy. Readings will include publications in the academic literature. The articles will provide an overview of psychedelic effects investigated by a variety of scientific methods (pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, pharmacogenomics, neuroscience) for several types of psychedelics (e.g., psilocybin, ayahuasca, MDMA, ketamine).

Upcoming Events

No events scheduled.

Psychological Approaches to Psychedelic Therapy

The format will include a short review of a selected paper by the group leader, followed by discussion of the content and related matters. This group will not be a forum for case presentations or extended sharing, either personal or clinical. The group is open to all, but will assume that members are interested in studying the academic literature on psychedelics from clinical, psychological, anthropological and philosophical points of view. We are asking Reading Group members to commit to the full 12-week series upon registration.
