The Psychedelic Resurgence in Psychiatry:
Ethics, Epistemology, and Enthusiasm
This symposium will explore growing enthusiasms related to the use of psychedelics in psychiatric contexts and beyond. Three talks on this topic will be released for viewing: 1) an examination of the rich history of psychedelic research in Canada by Erika Dyck 2) an overview of current research and policy discussions by Mark Haden 3) and an anthropological exploration of the psychedelic framework of set and setting by Tehseen Noorani. We will be hosting a virtual and live panel discussion including the three speakers which will explore in greater depth the ethical and epistemological questions that arise as psychedelic science is increasingly taken up in medicine.
The event is hosted by the Biomedical Ethics Unit and co-sponsored by the Med Class of '70, the Institute for Health and Social Policy, the Culture, Mind & Brain Program, the Division of Social and Transcultural Psychiatry, and the Department of Social Studies of Medicine.
