Psychedelics for Palliative Care and the Treatment of End-of-Life Existential Distress – 2 CE Credits

with Anthony Bossis, PhD

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

An Evening Workshop
Thursday, April 22, 2021, 7:00 – 9:00 pm EST

Existential despair, anxiety and depression are far too common at the end of life. This webinar will focus on findings from psychedelic research relieving the psychological and existential suffering associated with a life-threatening illness or the end of life.

The 2016 landmark NYU School of Medicine clinical trial demonstrated the efficacy of a single psilocybin-generated mystical experience in helping individuals with cancer cultivate meaning, enhance existential and psycho-spiritual well-being, and foster a greater acceptance of the dying process with less anxiety.

The scientific findings of reduction in depression, anxiety, hopelessness and demoralization will be presented along with implications for the future of palliative and hospice care, and the study of thanatology and consciousness. Psilocybin is the psychoactive compound in specific species of mushrooms.

Features of a mystical experience include unity, sacredness, transcendence, ineffability and an enhanced awareness of positive emotions including that of love. The mystical experience offers a novel therapeutic approach to promote an openness to the mystery of death and to a deeper understanding of the study of meaning and spirituality.


This workshop can be taken individually or as part of the Integrative Thanatology Certificate Training | An Art of Dying Education Program.
