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.
