Welcome back to Therapy Chat! Have you ever considered trying Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy (PAP)? If you’re a therapist, is this something that you’ve been wondering about adding to your practice? Maybe you’re just curious. Whether you’re a therapist or someone who is interested in learning about psychedelics and trauma, you’ll find something in this conversation that will inspire curiosity! This week I’m grateful to bring you my recent conversation with friend and colleague (and TTN member) Lauren Going, LCSW-C, RYT, a trauma-focused, psychedelic assisted psychotherapist, consultant and speaker who co-founded Baltimore’s Inner Path Wellness with Eleanor Bramwell, SEP, BSC. 

In this conversation you’ll hear me asking Lauren every possible question I can think of about what it’s really like to do psychedelic assisted psychotherapy for trauma, as a therapist and a client. She describes the various medicines she works with at Inner Path, how and why they help, and how to choose a practitioner for psychedelic assisted psychotherapy. She offers some resources for therapists who are interested in learning to use these medicines, talks about the research, and much more. Join us for a fascinating conversation!
