Description: 

 

Part 1: A Brief History of Psychedelic Psychoanalytic Therapy, and an Introduction to Psychedelic Phenomenology, presented by Jeffrey Guss, MD

The talk will begin with a brief review of the history of psychedelic psychoanalytic treatment in the United States and Europe. Following this, an introduction to psychedelic phenomenology from a psychoanalytic perspective will be offered, focusing on 1) attachment theory and psychedelic therapy, and 2) drug-induced drug ego solution (DIED). The relevance of these two phenomena for psychotherapy will be explored.

 

Part 2: My Bad, You Got This: Witnessing and therapeutic attitude in the psychedelic and psychoanalytic approaches to trauma, presented by Lawrence Fischman, MD

The MAPS sponsored MDMA-assisted therapy protocol is predicated on a synergy between drug action and the participant’s inner healing intelligence. A synergy between the therapist’s commitment to this treatment framework and the medication’s enhancement of trust enables people with PTSD to engage the therapist as a kind of witness. I discuss parallels between the therapeutic attitude implied in the inner healing intelligence model and that of the psychoanalyst in the resolution of dissociative enactment. In both settings, the therapist’s willingness to acknowledge her technical limitations or failings, coupled with a conviction that the participant/patient’s primary need in processing trauma is to feel witnessed, facilitates the integration of dissociated experience.

               

 

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this presentation, the attendee will be able to:

Describe the difference between psycholytic therapy and psychedelic therapy.
