BrainFutures has co-published the first Professional Practice Guidelines for Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy with the American Psychedelic Practitioners Association (www.appa-us.org). These guidelines are designed to address the evolving practice of psychedelic-assisted therapy. They are the first comprehensive guidelines for mental health providers practicing psychedelic-assisted therapy. The process of drafting these guidelines generated debate and consensus around professional standards for this treatment modality. They describe a benchmark of high-quality care as informed by existing clinical research and expert consensus in this area.
The Professional Practice Guidelines are part of a “living document” that will be updated as the field’s understanding of best practices evolves. Future versions of the PPGs are not intended to stand alone in perpetuity, but to be incorporated into general guidance for professionals working in the mental health field.
