Description

There are currently more than two hundred clinical research studies being conducted around the world, examining the effectiveness of psychedelic-assisted therapy in treating health issues such as end of life anxiety, treatment-resistant depression, generalized anxiety, PTSD, substance abuse disorder, and chronic pain.

The results of this research are extremely promising, generating growing interest from both mental health professionals looking for new options as well as people suffering from these conditions. Even so, there are many considerations health professionals must be aware of when it comes to psychedelic-assisted therapy.

So for this course, Dr. Craig Heacock is sits down with Dr. Jeremy Sharp of The Testing Psychologist to talk about psychedelic-assisted treatment of depression, trauma, and other concerns. They dive deep into three main psychedelic interventions: ketamine, MDMA, and psilocybin. For each intervention, they tackle the neurobiology of the substance and how it works in the brain, the ideal population(s) that may benefit from the intervention, and contraindications for each intervention.
