The Forum's History

Founded in 2014, the Psychedelic Psychotherapy Forum is currently Canada’s premier conference on psychedelic psychotherapy. The 2020 Forum was organized as a hybrid (live and virtual) event, and livestreamed from Vancouver Island Conference Centre in Nanaimo, BC.  The 2016 and 2018 Forums were held in Victoria, BC, and attended by over 200 registrants respectively.

The Forum is an opportunity for everyone interested in the field of psychedelic psychotherapy — including health providers, advocates, researchers, students, body workers, traditional and/or holistic therapists — to come together to learn, network, and dialogue about this exciting, challenging, and promising field. 

The Forum also offers training / continuing education credits to health care professionals including family physicians and physician assistants/nurses, psychologists, counsellors and psychotherapists. Psychedelic Psychotherapy Forum maintains responsibility for the program content.

The last five Forums, held in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2020, took place on Vancouver Island, BC.

As of May 2022, PPF is now housed under Wisdom Circle Events Inc. — a BC benefit company which is committed to promoting public benefits including healthcare education and training. PPF’s organizing committee includes Pauline Goh, founding member of PPF, and clinical counsellor; Nick McInnis, information technology network specialist; Nora Donahue, holistic health practitioner; and Jorge Carrillo, hospitality and event coordinator.
 
PPF is supported by a network of professionals, advocates, and volunteers in the community who contribute towards programming/visioning, scholarship initiatives, continuing education efforts, and more.
 
Our intention for the the 2022 Psychedelic Psychotherapy Forum is to co-create spaces for deep listening, dialogue, learning, relationship building and visioning.  PPF2022 intends to visibly “shake the tree” to open up possibilities for transforming health (especially mental health), and related professions. Through developing active, inclusive and cohesive communities with shared vision and practices, we can create positive changes and solutions.
