ICPR 2024 Abstract

Navigating the high seas: Confronting the challenges of the psychedelic renaissance

Highlighting the crucial role of groups like Stichting LIAAN, Mandy will share a local experience of how ceremonial plant work facilitators can organize for self-regulation, creating ethical and accountability frameworks to promote health and legal safety both to guides and to participants. As a psychotherapist, Mandy's intervention underscores the complexity of trauma and the necessity of a holistic approach to therapy. By integrating a wide range of therapeutic modalities and advocating for the support of self-organized groups, her work exemplifies a comprehensive and compassionate path to healing, crucial for individuals navigating the aftermath of intense and challenging experiences, especially those that have suffered different kinds of abuse of power.
