In this interactive, two-and-a-half-hour, workshop the facilitators will discuss current research using psychedelics, such as psilocybin and MDMA, for the treatment of mental health disorders, including depression, PTSD, and addiction, and the need for a theoretical framework to guide future practice. As this promising research evolves and eventually leaves the lab, practitioners will need a framework to support this work. Gestalt therapy is proposed as a theoretical framework well-suited for psychedelic-assisted therapy. Facilitators will discuss and engage participants in dialogue exploring Gestalt principles and methods that fit this emerging area of practice. This talk is intended as a creative exploration of the possible contributions Gestalt can make in the resurgence of the use of psychedelics and other psychoactive compounds for treatment and personal growth.
