These workshops are very valuable for the mental health community. There are few places one can go to learn how to work with clients who have had a psychedelic experience and to assist them with integration. It’s my opinion that all therapists should be educated about entheogens, not only to become more aware of their therapeutic value, but also to gain a deeper understanding of what their clients need if they’ve taken these substances for self healing.
