As we recently saw quite an influx of new members joining our journal club, we decided to go back to the basics and talk about dose, set and setting. More specifically, we want to focus on the methodologies used by various studies that investigate the influence of different factors on psychedelic experiences.
In the second meeting of this month (16th), we will discuss different approaches to the therapeutic setting, by comparing psychedelic with psycholytic therapy. Here, we will be able to get a more practical understanding of how set and setting may be optimized to improve mental health. In this context, we'll also discuss the role of finding the 'right' dose. One of our members agreed to prepare this topic more in-depth, but as always, you'll be able to find the literature in our google drive, and it would be great if you could have a look at it before joining.
Our meetings are open to everyone who is interested in the topic.
