Trauma as Catalyst for Transformation: Entheogenic Journeys for Discovering and Celebrating the True Self
Developmental trauma can create defensive personality patterns that stop us from moving in the direction of our greatest fulfillment. Latest research reveals that psychedelics can play a vital role in healing. In this presentation Jane Latimer, MA will discuss trauma as a catalyst for transformation. Clinicians will learn 1) how individuals struggling with the symptoms of childhood trauma can utilize psychedelic psychotherapy effectively; 2) how therapists can appropriately prepare their clients for these experiences; 3) how stages of growth (and healing) impact a client’s experience of psychedelic medicine; and 4) contraindications for clients with complex post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD).
