Continuing Education (CE) accreditation will be available upon completion.

This workshop is an introduction to the practice of Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration (PHRI). It will provide participants with tools for educating clients about altered states of consciousness and how to integrate these experiences.

Harm reduction will be emphasized throughout the process - from assessment, preparation, the experiential session, to integration. Participants will be given a framework for working with clients during integration, emphasizing somatic and mindful inquiry. This will incorporate elements from a variety of therapeutic modalities, from modern bio-medical to traditional Indigenous perspectives.

Support your clients as they navigate and interpret their psychedelic experiences

Through this 2-part Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration (PHRI) training, you will learn the tools to help educate clients about altered states of consciousness and how to integrate these experiences afterward. By using several case studies, we will explore common themes that arise during PHRI therapy, as well as provide a framework for working with clients during integration, emphasizing somatic and mindful inquiry. This will incorporate elements from a variety of therapeutic modalities, from modern bio-medical to traditional Indigenous perspectives.

Led by a physician, a psychologist, and an integration therapist, this training draws upon clinical experience, current evidence, and state of best practices in the field of psychedelic-assisted therapy.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this workshop, participants will know more about how to:

  • Assess the client needs during the different stages of the psychedelic journey
  • Apply a harm reduction framework to assessment, preparation, and integration
  • Articulate the current ethical limitations and considerations of psychedelic harm reduction
  • Support and guide clients through the integration process at an introductory level
