The Dr. Kim Sage Show: How the Clinical Use of Psychedelics with Psychotherapy May Be Helpful in Treating Trauma and Other Mental Health Issues: Emerging Trends and Research

Dr. Kim Sage, Clinical Psychologist, welcomes her guest, fellow Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Edward Margines, who explains the emerging trends and research around using psychedelics with psychotherapy, and why they might work together to help patients suffering with PTSD, and other mental health challenges.

What are psychedelics and how might they impact the treatment of mental health issues, such as PTSD or treatment-resistant depression?

Given the recent passing of legislation for the use of psilocybin in Denver, Colorado, as well as the often exploitative headlines around psychedelics use, Dr. Margines joins the show this week to break down these headlines, and explain why they are trending topics in psychology, and what they mean for the world of mental health treatment.

The serious risks and realities of using psychedelics are thoroughly discussed, and their uses are absolutely not encouraged, but rather the topic is explained and explored, as part of a greater dialogue around emerging mental health treatments.
