NY LICENSED PSYCHOTHERAPIST

PSYCHEDELIC SOMATIC INTERACTIONAL PSYCHOTHERAPY

(PSIP)

Psychedelic Somatic Interactional Psychotherapy (PSIP) is a therapeutic approach that incorporates elements of both psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and somatic psychotherapy. The term "somatic" refers to the body and physical sensations.

In PSIP, the focus is on the integration of the mind and body in therapy and the use of psychedelic substances to facilitate a therapeutic process that includes both a psychological and a somatic component. The therapy aims to help individuals gain a deeper understanding of their thoughts, feelings, and experiences and to address mental health issues and emotional difficulties in a holistic and integrative way.

In a PSIP session, the individual takes a low dose of a psychedelic substance under the supervision of a trained therapist. The dose is typically low enough to induce a state of altered consciousness, but not to the extent that the individual loses touch with reality. The therapy then focuses on the exploration of both psychological and somatic experiences, with the therapist helping the individual to process and integrate the experiences in a therapeutic context.

It's important to note that PSIP is still in the early stages of research and is not yet widely accepted as a standard medical treatment. The use of psychedelics in therapy should only be done under the supervision of trained professionals and with careful monitoring of its effects and potential side effects.

What happens in a PSIP session?

A PSIP therapy session typically involves several stages:

  1. Preparation: Before the session, the therapist will spend time with the individual to help them understand the process, set intentions for the session, and address any concerns or fears.

  2. Dosing: In a controlled and supervised environment, the individual takes a low dose of a psychedelic substance under the supervision of a trained therapist.

  3. Exploration: During the session, the individual engages in a therapeutic process that incorporates both psychological and somatic components. The altered state of consciousness induced by the psychedelic substance can help the individual to access and process difficult emotions, thoughts, and experiences, and to gain a new perspective on their mental health and emotional difficulties.

  4. Integration: After the session, the therapist works with the individual to integrate the experiences and insights gained during the session into their everyday life. This may involve exploring new ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving, as well as addressing any residual emotions or experiences that may have arisen during the session.

  5. Follow-up: In the days and weeks following the session, the individual may continue to process their experiences and integrate the insights gained during the session. The therapist may provide additional support and guidance to help the individual make lasting changes and improvements to their mental and emotional well-being.

It's important to note that PSIP is still in the early stages of research and is not yet widely accepted as a standard medical treatment. The use of psychedelics in therapy should only be done under the supervision of trained professionals and with careful monitoring of their effects and potential side effects.
