This presentation will focus on psilocybin, its therapeutic uses and outcomes in various settings for people with a variety of mental health related challenges.  How essential is the psychotherapy for the process of change, and what sets it aside from other approaches?  The presentation will also cover the key elements in training therapists for this work and why they are important.
