Recently, psychotherapist training for a psychedelic clinical trial that is being led by Beckley Psytech began. This comes as interest in psychedelic substances and the properties and benefits they possess increases in America as well as the United Kingdom.
Beckley Psytech specializes in addressing psychiatric and neurological disorders through new applications for psychedelic drugs. The pioneering phase 2 clinical trial will explore 5-MeO-DMT assisted psychotherapy in the management of treatment-resistant depression.
Psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy refers to the therapeutic process entailing the administration of a psychedelic drug alongside traditional talk-therapy sessions. Prior clinical trials have demonstrated that psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy improves clinical symptoms of various disorders and promotes positive and lasting changes in some patients.
Beckley Psytech CEO Cosmo Feilding Mellen stated that the start of the training program was an important step in the development of an ecosystem that supported the shift in how psychiatric and neurological conditions were treated. The training program is being conducted in partnership with an expertise-driven education platform known as Fluence, which provides professional training in psychedelic therapy for psychotherapists, psychiatrists and social workers, among other healthcare practitioners.
Cofounder of Fluence Dr. Elizabeth Nielson stated that seeing clinicians being involved in and learning Beckley’s therapeutic protocol and approach so they could be well equipped to offer psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy to study participants was encouraging.
Data shows that only about 65% of patients suffering from depression respond to antidepressants, with some of those whose treatments are ineffective exhibiting treatment-resistant symptoms, which is often accompanied by difficulties in occupational and social function, suicidal thoughts and a decline in their physical health. Roughly 30% of patients suffering from treatment-resistant depression don’t respond to any form of treatment.
Beckley Psytech’s objective is to develop a holistic system that will facilitate the delivery of the best care to patients around the globe through a partnership with leading researchers and psychiatrists.
Initial aspects of the training project will include interactive, online, self-taught modules, which will be followed by in-person, live training sessions hosted by San Diego’s Kadima Neuropsychiatry Institute. Director of the Kadima Neuropsychiatry Institute Dr. David Feifel stated that facilitating the training demonstrated the institute’s desire to develop a deeper collaborative relationship with Beckley and ensure the success of this important and exciting project.
This comprehensive program aspires to be the catalyst for significant change among individuals suffering from serious mental health conditions. Beckley Psytech plans to train at least 80 psychotherapists over the next year.
