June 17, 2022 | 10:30am - 5:30pm EST | live, online
Continuing Education (CE) accreditation will be available upon completion.

This workshop is intended to help therapists learn how to educate clients about altered states of consciousness and support integration following these experiences. Join Dr. Patricia Rockman, Psychologist Joe Flanders and Integration specialist Deanna Rogers as they guide you through a framework for applying harm reduction and integration in psychedelic healing.

Support your clients as they make meaning of their psychedelic experiences

Through this 1-day 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.

Please note that this approach applies to a range of altered states and does not address any psychedelic substance in depth. Participants will be directed to resources for further education.

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 psychotherapy

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
