Toward a contextual psychedelic-assisted therapy: Perspectives from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and contextual behavioral science

Abstract
After two decades of quiescence, clinical psychedelic research re-started in the 1990s and is rapidly accelerating. Early evidence for effectiveness is promising, but understanding of the psychological processes of change underlying observed benefits is limited. This paper outlines contextual behavioral science (CBS) as an ideal framework for understanding psychedelic experiences and the psychological processes of change involved in psychedelic assisted therapy. This paper argues that CBS-based therapies, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), can contribute to deepening and maintaining the often profound acute effects of psychedelics. The paper begins by briefly outlining the current state of clinical psychedelic research. It then progresses to outlining why CBS may be uniquely positioned to potentially increase the efficacy of psychedelic-assisted therapy, how this scientific model fits with existing data on psychedelic-assisted therapy, as well as with leading neuroscientific theories such as the entropic brain theory. Finally, it concludes by suggesting avenues for future research on how CBS could contribute to psychedelic science, and vice versa. Read more…
