Psychedelics and Individuation:
Conversations with Jungian Analysts
December 15th – 17th, 2023
Winter Conference | Hosted on campus
A Joint IAAP and Pacifica Graduate Institute Conference
Winter Conference | Hosted on campus at Pacifica Graduate Institute, 801 Ladera Lane, Santa Barbara, CA
Pacifica Graduate Institute and the IAAP invite you to join us for this historic conference exploring the place of psychedelics in the practice of Jungian Psychoanalysis. Psychedelics are increasingly being proposed for the treatment of a variety of psychological pathologies. However, guidelines for their use are not yet settled and their place in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis is unclear. This conference will bring together Jungian Analysts and scholars from around the world to engage in conversations on the possibilities, potential and cautionary considerations regarding the use of psychedelics in Jungian Psychoanalysis.
Panel discussions, keynotes and working groups featuring the contributing authors of the soon-to-be-released book, Psychedelics and Individuation: Essays by Jungian Analysts, (Chiron, November 2023) will describe and explore the effects of psychedelics on such matters as the transference-countertransference, their place in the individuation process, and their effects on the psychoanalytic frame. We will discuss the issue of establishing the intention through Jungian concepts, the questions that related to the psychoanalytic frame in the setting and integrating the material that emerges during psychedelic sessions. The issues are many, such as the appropriate demands on the analyst, their effect on the ego-Self axis, and the clinical indications and counterindications for their use.
Attendees of the on-campus conference will receive a copy of the book, Psychedelics and Individuation: Essays by Jungian Analysts, as part of their registration.
Portions of the conference presentations will be live-streamed. Please see the schedule below. (Book is not included in the live stream registration).
