In 2018, Slovak Psychedelic Society continues in its effort to connect professionals from various disciplines, expand their knowledge in topics related to psychedelics and inform the general public about the latest advances in psychedelic research. The conference moves to a new, bigger venue and spans two days. This year, we would like to emphasize the self-critical spirit. To avoid false beliefs, we strive to make an evidence-based case for the value of psychedelics, at both the individual and societal level. To avoid naive enthusiasm but also unjustified fear reactions rooted in past, we want to give proper say to the associated risks, myths, and blunders of psychedelics.
Conference themes: psychedelics in science, in therapy, in society and history; harm reduction and integration
Place: New Cvernovka, Bratislava, Slovakia
Date: May 18th and 19th, 2018
In 2017, Slovak Psychedelic Society organized their first multidisciplinary and international academic and scientific conference in cooperation with Philipp Pinel Psychiatric Hospital in Pezinok. With this conference, we put Slovakia on the map of psychedelic research and therapy and caught the attention of broader professional public. In this way, we have deepened cooperation with our Czech colleagues and established relations with colleagues from Germany and Switzerland.
