The Psychedelic and Experiential Medicine Interest Group
Psychedelic and experiential medicine have rapidly changing regulatory and cultural landscapes- with ever-increasing investigations, growing use cases, and FDA-approved treatments on the horizon. Psychedelic and experiential medicine hold great promise as therapeutics for an expanding range of mental health conditions, but perhaps more importantly offer a potential paradigm shift in brain health and mental health treatment. These therapies alter foundational constructs by facilitating profound experiences and modulate brain circuitry and networks which are believed to 1) potentiate sustained, positive change in attitudes and values, personality, and mindfulness and 2) reduce suffering due to refractory psychiatric and psychological ailments.
Preeminent medical and academic centers, non-profit organizations, and pioneers of industry are developing sophisticated systems which will provide unique opportunities and careers for those with demonstrated interests and knowledge of this re-emerging, but still nascent field. Moreover, the pursuit of more efficacious treatments, with novel agents and modalities, represents an extraordinarily compelling line of inquiry. Naturally, increasing numbers of researchers and clinicians are seeking training and educational opportunities focused on psychedelic and experiential medicine. Our interest group cultivates a space to critically appraise foundational concepts in this burgeoning field through various scientific, ethical, and political lenses and creates opportunities to expand its boundaries. We facilitate this exploration through a structured reading seminar, expert speaker and panel discussions, participation in novel research, and networking opportunities.
