Join this free, 60-minute online webinar to gain access to insights and learn about ground breaking treatments to chronic mental health conditions.
In this webinar Dr Arne Rubinstein will clearly explain the key elements of a Rite of Passage which is a transformational process. He will look at how Psychedelic Therapy clearly contains these key elements which is why it is so successful.
He will explain how a transformational process requires the psyche to actually become open, otherwise known as liminal space, so that previously held belief systems and values can change…hence it being a transformational process.
Participants will take away a great knowledge and awareness around Rites of Passage and their critical role in healthy human development and wellbeing, how they can be created and how psychedelics are definitely an option for doing so.
Following the presentation there will be a Q & A panel with Dr Arne Rubinstein, Tania de Jong AM and Peter Hunt AM. This will be an opportunity to engage in a discussion about psychedelic-assisted psychotherapies for mental illness broadly, and what Mind Medicine Australia and other local organisations are doing here in Australia.
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.
