Join CIIS professor and clinical psychologist Jason Butler and clinical psychologist Genesee Herzberg with psychotherapist and mentor in the Center for Psychedelic Therapies and Research (CPTR) Gisele Fernandes-Osterhold for a conversation exploring how psychedelic medicine can be incorporated into contemporary psychotherapy.

Jason and Genesee share insights from their work along with those from the diverse set of practicing psychotherapists and leading researchers featured in their new evidence-based collection, Integral Psychedelic Therapy. They discuss their aim to provide practitioners with a method that centers liberation of all dimensions of being through intersectional, client-centered, trauma-informed, and attachment-focused practices, alongside thoughtful attunement to the relational, somatic, imaginal, cultural, and transpersonal dimensions of healing. 

Together, Jason, Genesee, and Gisele examine the practice of psychedelic therapy and offer practical guidance for cultivating a highly effective, ethically grounded, and integral approach to psychedelic therapy.

His therapeutic approach and teaching orientation is an integration of archetypal, relational, somatic, and liberation frameworks, with a lifelong interest in the study of dreams and the engagement of imagination in healing practices. He is deeply committed to broadening diversity, accessibility, and theoretical rigor in the field of psychedelic psychotherapy.

He has written several published articles and chapters on the intersection of depth psychology and social justice. He is the author of a book entitled Archetypal Psychotherapy: The Clinical Legacy of James Hillman and is the co-editor and co-author of a newly released book entitled Integral Psychedelic Therapy: The Non-Ordinary Art of Psychospiritual Healing.

She is a trainer and supervisor in ketamine-assisted therapy through Sage and MDMA-assisted therapy through MAPS. Genesee is an author and co-editor of the book Integral Psychedelic Therapy.
