Ethical and Legal Considerations in Providing Psychedelic Integration Therapy with Brian Pilecki, Ph.D. and Jason Luoma, Ph.D.
There is an increasing demand from clients seeking therapeutic support in their use of psychedelics as tools for personal growth and healing. However, many clinicians interested in psychedelic preparation and integration are unsure as to how to provide these services while psychedelics remain illegal. This webinar will outline legal and ethical frameworks relevant to providing therapy to clients around their use of psychedelics, as well as describe how harm reduction approaches are suitable for this new clinical area. We will outline the most common ethical and legal risks for therapists engaging in this work and steps to mitigate this risk. We also discuss common decision points and provide reflection questions for clinicians considering involvement in psychedelic integration therapy.
