Safe facilitation of MDMA therapy begins with a systematic intake and screening process. A good intake process will reduce risks associated with MDMA use, prevent adverse effects from occurring, and increase the odds of a beneficial outcome.

I have been involved in screening persons interested in psychedelic experiences via my consulting practice for several years. I’ve assisted retreat centers in designing effective screening procedures and support facilitators or providers of psychedelics in helping gauge risks of use in persons with different illnesses and medication regimens.

In short, I care about this area a lot and specialize in it! I thought it would be helpful for persons involved in facilitating experiences to put together a webinar workshop where we can:

• Discuss elements of intake forms and screening interviews
• List elements that may be helpful in holistically considering risks of MDMA use
• Define conditions that are typically excluded from clinical trials of MDMA therapy that may be considered red flags or contraindications to use
• Review case example intake forms and discuss their contents
