Here’s what they say

After decades of stigma, misunderstanding, limited access – and a complete ban on research – scientists are rediscovering psychedelics’ therapeutic potential for a vast range of mental health issues, from depression to addiction, and to the acceptance of mortality.

A frenzy of interest has captivated a new generation of researchers, and last year the U.S.’s highly respected and oldest research institution, Johns Hopkins University, launched a dedicated center for psychedelic studies. Now there are dozens of studies being conducted at respected institutions using the highest standards of scientific rigor.

While the research is still emergent, studies have shown that positive results can come from short courses – even single sessions – of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy.

Psilocybin, in particular, shows tremendous promise for treating depression, addiction and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). So much so, that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designated psilocybin therapy as a “breakthrough therapy” for depression, suggesting it may be an enormous improvement over already available therapy.

No longer will you or your clients have to settle for status-quo treatment options that too often fall short.

Psychedelic therapy has been brought out of the shadows and is swiftly becoming an available option to help your clients achieve the breakthroughs they need with persistent challenges like addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma and the debilitating effects these conditions have on their lives.

As a result, there is a growing urgency for therapists and guides who are trained on best practices to mitigate risk, reduce harm and ensure positive short-term and long-term outcomes for clients.

Experts in psychedelic health care agree these best practices must be informed by clinical research, wisdom traditions and hands-on experience.

That’s why The Synthesis Institute, in partnership with some of the world’s foremost scholars and practitioners, is hosting The Fundamentals of Psychedelics: How to Work Safely, Ethically and Skillfully in The New Paradigmto give mental health professionals, as well as practitioners supporting health and wellness in other modalities, the foundational footing essential to working with psychedelics inside a therapeutic model.

Now, you can be expertly educated to do meaningful work that will change the paradigm of mental health care forever.
