Exploring Psychedelics in End-of-Life Care: Enhancing Well-being and Meaning in Terminal Illness

McConnell Library, Sydney

The diagnosis of a terminal illness can be devastating and destabilizing. The prospect of our life ending can leave us with anxiety, depression, and a crisis of meaning and interfere with the project of living our lives well. In recent years, some remarkable results have emerged from research on the role of psilocybin in the care of people with end-of-life anxiety and depression. This talk will outline the recent research on psilocybin and end-of-life care, including, protocols for the ethical and therapeutic use of psychedelics. Presented by Dr. Brenda Durdle, a semi-retired Registered Psychologist with a small private practice in Sydney, Zephyr Psychological. For the past three years she has been exploring and training in the area of psychedelics and well-being. She completed an Introduction to Psychedelics with ATMA in 2021 and is currently immersed in training with the non-profit, CPA approved Canadian organization TheraPsil. Everyone welcome. February is Psychology Month.
