Psilocybin-Assisted Existential, Attachment and RelationaL (PEARL) Therapy for End-of-Life Distress in Patients with Advanced Cancer
We have developed a new method of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy for end-of-life distress in patients with advanced cancer called PEARL Therapy. A series of studies to be conducted at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre will examine the feasibility, safety and efficacy of PEARL Therapy.
Psilocybin-assisted Existential, Attachment and RelationaL (PEARL) Therapy for Caregivers
Caregivers of advanced cancer patients often report higher levels of distress than the patients themselves. We are planning pilot studies of PEARL therapy for caregivers of advanced cancer patients and for bereaved caregivers.
Experiential Training in Therapists Learning Psychedelic-assisted Psychotherapy
This mixed-methods pilot study will investigate the role of experiential training for therapists in our certificate program by providing trainees with the option to receive a course of psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy.
We will examine how people integrate their psychedelic experiences in the community via surveys, semi-structured interviews and focus groups. This work will lead to the development of best practice guidelines and psychotherapeutic approaches to support integration.
