This introductory-level workshop will provide attendees with information about psychedelic-assisted therapy. This webinar will provide a high-level overview of PAT for mental health professionals. 


Many therapists are trying to sort out what is fact-from-fiction. The media is sometimes promoting miracle-cures from psychedelics. A recent California state bill that would have allowed for regulated use of psychedelics almost passed in the state legislature. The main goal of this webinar is to set appropriate expectations that are research based. 


This presentation is based on empirical research and an accurate assessment of current legal trends. This presentation will present current and accurate information about psychedelic-assisted therapy. This will help attendees provide ethical and clinically sound information to their clients. Attendees will leave the session being able to:

  • Identify three findings from clinical research on psychedelic-assisted therapy
  • Describe two challenges in providing psychedelic-assisted therapy
  • Identify a method of training for providers of psychedelic-assisted therapy
