PROMISES & PERILS OF PSYCHEDELICS: CATALYZING INDIVIDUATION & DYSREGULATING EGO


SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2021
1 – 4PM
FACULTY: KILE M. ORTIGO, PhD, EVAN SOLA, PsyD, JEROME BRAUN, LMFT
3 Possible Continuing Education Credits Approved for MD, PhD, PsyD, MFT, LCSW, LPCC, LEP & RN
TUITION: $75 INCLUDES CEUs
 
At this time all classes will be online. As guidelines and requirements for meeting in public evolve and we are able to do so safely, we will let registrants know their options. 
 

C. G. Jung’s concept of individuation may be viewed as a framework for the expansiveness stimulated by powerful experiences, such as psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy.
The process of individuation offers much in both risk and reward. With growing threats of environmental and cultural crisis, the need for fostering consciousness is great. This half-day conference will explore individuation as a framework for the expansiveness required to facilitate humanity’s flourishing in the 21st century. We will explore the promises and perils of stimulating individuation with powerful experiences, such as psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy.
 
Kile M. Ortigo will relate individuation concepts to psychospiritual models such as Joseph Campbell’s monomyth and the Perennial Philosophy. He will connect psychedelic journeys with a larger
individuation framework with examples from myth, religion, and film to highlight risks and rewards as understood from our modern culture.

Evan Sola will continue the discussion with clinical material from psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy sessions. Alongside healing, the psyche may become permeable to intense affects that threaten ego integrity. 
 
Clinical vignettes will show how clients move through these places, often revealing archetypal themes. A discussion and panel Q&A led by Jungian analyst Jerome Braun will follow the above.
