Clinical skills in psychedelic medicine: Lessons learned from theory, research and practice

How advances in psychedelic medicine can inform the practice of psychotherapy

In this training, Dr. Adele Lafrance will share lessons learned as a psychologist and research scientist actively engaged in both fields – psychedelic medicine and conventional psychology/psychotherapy. Supported by anecdotes, video clips and research, concepts such as emotion processing, spirituality, intergenerational trauma, and attachment will be reviewed from a different lens, including practical ways to bridge the work with clients.

Learning objectives:

  • Describe the conceptualization of mental health issues informed by lessons learned in the context of psychedelic medicine
  • Describe clinical interventions from psychedelic medicine
  • Discuss the need to rehabilitate the concept of love in psychotherapy
