Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy

The literature on ketamine-assisted psychotherapy has found the psychedelic effects of ketamine to be of therapeutic benefit when adequate psychotherapeutic support and integration are provided following ketamine treatment. Integration is a key component of the psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy model. Come along to our webcast presented by Dr. Shevaugn Johnson and Meg Wilson to learn about the evidence-based applications of ketamine and meta-analyses which compare a single infusion of ketamine to placebo/active placebo for the treatment of major depressive disorder and bipolar depression.

The field of psychedelic assisted therapy which also includes ketamine assisted therapy has existed only for a short time in the field of western medicine. Learn about different therapeutic approaches, psychedelic integration and what a clinical ketamine experience may feel like.

There will also be a short Q&A on the night.

Dr Shevaugn Johnson (Clinical Psychologist)

Dr Shevaugn Johnson is originally from Canada, where she trained as a surgical and mental health nurse and obtained a bachelor’s degree in psychology with honours. In 2016 Dr Johnson was awarded the Flinders International Postgraduate Research Scholarship to study a Doctorate Degree in Clinical Psychology. She specialised in the research of body dysmorphic disorder, winning two higher degree research publication awards. Throughout the completion of her Doctorate, Dr Johnson developed a special interest in the use of psychedelics to alleviate mental health problems. Drawing upon a Canadian database, she is currently collaborating with North American researchers to replicate a 2015 population-based study, which found that lifetime use of classic psychedelics predicted lower suicidality and psychological distress.

Dr Johnson has also published case reports of individuals who reported to have benefited from their use of psychedelics and is currently working on a protocol for a psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy trial in South Australia. Dr Johnson has extensive experience working with diverse mental health populations, including post-traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders, and substance use disorders. She is a strong advocate for the dissemination of education surrounding the safe use of psychedelics and hopes to continue working with like-minded individuals who recognise the transdiagnostic potential of these medicines.

Meg Wilson

Meg was originally born in the United States and migrated to Australia in 2008 to begin studying at Monash University where she completed a bachelor's degree of visual and contemporary art with a special interest in art for social change.

In 2016 Meg graduated from Latrobe University with a Master’s of Art Psychotherapy and began a 4-year stint as a group therapist for adults in a psychiatric day-program. There she trained as part of a team facilitating dialectical behavioural therapy programs. It was there that she developed an interest in psychedelic-assisted therapy for treatment resistant mental health conditions.

She is also an author and advocate for inclusion of diverse cultures, race, genders, sexuality and relationship-styles. Meg is passionate about providing a space for clients to make informed choices about the use of psychedelics and to feel empowered to author their own life story.
