Our Topic Specialties
Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or “ACT", is an evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapy and has garnered significant empirical support for treating a wide variety of psychological problems. ACT emphasizes such processes as mindfulness, acceptance, and values in helping clients overcome obstacles to living well.
A basic assumption of ACT is that suffering is a normal and unavoidable part of human experience and that it is actually people’s attempts to control or avoid their own painful experiences that lead to much long-term suffering.
Therapy & Research in Psychedelic Science
Therapy & Research in Psychedelic Science, or "TRIPS", is an online seminar series that hosts speakers discussing science-informed presentations and discussions about psychedelics to educate healthcare professionals.
This series was created to guide healthcare providers and students preparing to be professionals towards the most relevant, pragmatic, and essential information about psychedelic-assisted therapy, changing legal statuses, and harm reduction approaches in order to better serve clients and communities.
