Becoming Whole Again: Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy for Trauma

Bessel van der Kolk, MD and Ron Siegel, PsyD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Webinar: Live Broadcast Dates: Monday, January 24, 2022
Live Broadcast Time: 1:15 pm to 4:30 pm ET

This webinar is part of the Learning from Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy with Ronald Siegel .

Can’t Attend Live? This webinar will be recorded and archived. All registrants will be given unlimited access to the recording for a full year after the Live Broadcast date.

Of all the disorders for which psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy research shows promise, the most dramatic results to date are found with trauma therapy treatment.

In fact, a Phase III study using MDMA for serious trauma has yielded remarkable results. Reductions in symptoms greatly surpassed what has been seen with other interventions.

How does psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy work to resolve trauma? What are the mechanisms of action this type of trauma therapy illuminates? How can clinicians working in other modalities harness these mechanisms to enhance treatment? How might we cultivate the attitudes that are effective in psychedelic-assisted work without pharmacological assistance?

Join Dr. Bessel Van der Kolk, one of the world’s leading authorities on trauma therapy, and Dr. Ron Siegel, as they explore these questions.

You’ll learn how to help clients safely open to experiences that have been pushed out of awareness to heal trauma. This webinar will be useful to clinicians with or without prior experience in either trauma treatment or psychedelic-assisted therapy.

About the Presenters:

Bessel van der Kolk, MD, has spent his career studying how children and adults adapt to traumatic experiences. He has translated emerging findings from neuroscience and attachment research to develop and study a range of trauma therapy treatments for stress in children and adults.

In 1984, Dr. van der Kolk set up one of the first clinical/research centres in the United States dedicated to the study and treatment of traumatic stress. Bessel was also involved in the first studies on the effects of SSRIs on PTSD as a member of the first neuroimaging team to investigate how trauma changes brain processes. He led the first research linking BPD and deliberate self-injury to trauma and neglect in early childhood.

Much of Dr. van der Kolk’s research has focused on how trauma has a unique impact at different stages of development and how disruptions in caregiving systems obstruct effective intervention. His work helped establish the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN). This congressionally mandated initiative funds approximately 150 centres offering interventions and trauma therapy.

Dr. Ron Siegel joins Dr. van der Kolk to present this workshop on trauma therapy. A part-time assistant professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School, Ron Siegel has taught for over 35 years.

A long-time student of mindfulness meditation, Ron serves on the Board of Directors and faculty of the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy. He teaches internationally about mind-body medicine and the application of mindfulness and compassion practices in psychotherapy, trauma therapy, and other fields.

Ron has edited and written several books, including the critically acclaimed professional text, Mindfulness and Psychotherapy, 2nd Edition, a comprehensive guide for general audiences. He also authored several professional guides: The Mindfulness Solution: Everyday Practices for Everyday Problems, Sitting Together: Essential Skills for Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy, and Wisdom and Compassion in Psychotherapy. Ron’s step-by-step self-treatment guide, Back Sense, integrates mindfulness practice, aggressive rehabilitation, and mind-body approaches to treat chronic back and neck pain.

Dr. Siegel has also created courses for general audiences. These include The Science of Mindfulness: A Research-Based Path to Well-Being produced by The Great Courses. Healing Through Mindfulness: Effective Practices for Chronic Health Conditions is a course produced by Sounds True.

Dr. van der Kolk’s efforts also helped establish the Trauma Research Foundation. The Foundation’s clinical team specializes in the treatment of those with histories of child maltreatment. Its research lab studies the effects of neurofeedback and MDMA on behaviour, mood, and executive functioning. The Foundation also trains mental health professionals, educators, parent groups, policymakers, and law enforcement personnel.
