Public Forum Day

Oct 1, 2022 – 9am – 5pm  (In-Person & Online)

Presentations & Q/As

Education, Information, Resources

As part of PPF2022’s service to the wider community, we are for the first time presenting a Public Forum Day — a full-day conference crafted for those curious about psychedelic medicines and alternative modalities to treat PTSD, depression, anxiety. While also relevant to practitioners who want an update on the lay of the land in BC and Canada, this event is also suitable for students and for those who may be new to this field. 

This separate admission conference consists of presentations, panel sessions, and Q&As — to disseminate up-to-date information, and to address queries and developments about psychedelic assisted therapies and research, clinical trials, ministry-approved projects, benefits and risks, and action steps/resources to ensure safe practices.

Topics will include:

  • Debunking myths about health care system
  • Updates from/regarding Therapsil, Roots to Thrive, Psychedelic Association of Canada, MAPS Canada, and Chacruna Canada
  • Research update/summary; Psychedelic Research Institute
  • Harm reduction and resources
  • Accessibility of medicines and treatments
  • Patients’ voices; importance and power of preparation and integration, set and setting, and group therapy
  • Above ground vs underground practices
  • Safety and ethics; opportunities and risks/red flags; competency of sitters vs therapists
