Psychedelic-Assisted Therapies Q&A for Clinicians
Presented by Dr Lauren Macdonald (UK), Dr Ted Cassidy & Peter Hunt AM
There are only a matter of weeks to go until MDMA & psilocybin-assisted therapies become available in Australia outside of clinical trials. Clinicians are filled with questions, as they wonder how things will progress once July 1st comes.
And so we would like to invite students and graduates of our CPAT program and other clinicians to join us for this important Q&A session. It will be illuminating and clarifying for all.
In this session, we will cover:
1. What’s going to happen from July?
Co-founder of Monarch Mental Health Dr Ted Cassidy & Chair of MMA Peter Hunt AM will answer questions from community members such as:
- How does the authorised prescriber process work?
What will the roll out look like at a clinic actively offering PAT?
What do doctors interested in supporting PAT need to know?
What options exist for non-psychiatrists wanting to get started working with PAT?
2. What’s it like working as a psychedelic therapist?
Dr Lauren Macdonald from Imperial College London will share her perspective on the experience of working clinically with psychedelics. You’ll learn:
- How to develop as a skillful, safe and ethical psychedelic-assisted therapist.
- What are some of the biggest challenges for clinicians entering this space to consider?
- What advice would you give to clinicians before their first dosing session?
We’ll be accepting written questions before and during the webinar. You’ll find a link to submit questions in your confirmation email.
Date: Tuesday 6 June 2023
Time: 6:25pm for 6:30pm start – 7:45pm (incl Q&A) (AEST)
The presentation WILL BEGIN AT 6:30pm.
Location: Online. A link will be emailed to you with the viewing details

More about medicinal psychedelic treatments:
Psychedelic-assisted treatments offer enormous potential in providing a meaningful alternative to current treatments for mental illness. PTSD is a debilitating condition that affects tens of millions of people worldwide, with many more trauma victims diagnosed with comorbid conditions such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders. In recent clinical trials, MDMA has been shown to produce reliable clinical improvements, restoring patient safety and self-agency even for individuals who have suffered with PTSD for many years, and for whom many treatments have failed.
The wave of clinical psychedelic research and regulatory support is rapidly building, with experts forecasting the availability of psychedelic-assisted treatments in the US and EU within the next 2 to 5 years, subject to positive clinical outcomes in large trials that are currently underway.
