Self-experimentation among psychedelic researchers, facilitators and clinicians

Study description

The aim of this online survey study is to evaluate the prevalence of self-experimentation with psychedelics among psychedelic researchers, clinicians and facilitators. Additionally we will look at how individual differences in prior experience with using psychedelics affect one’s attitudes and beliefs about psychedelics and evaluate whether, and to what extent, self-experimentation may lead to biases in their work.

Study Qualifications

The following should be applicable to you to be able to participate in this study:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • A good command of the English language
  • Professionally work with psychedelics (e.g psychedelic researcher, psychedelic assisted psychotherapist, psychedelic facilitator/trip-sitter)
Participate in this study

Your participation consists of conducting an online study, including a couple of questionnaires and short experimental tasks. We will ask you to share and reflect on your personal experiences with psychedelics. We will also ask about your views on the research field of psychedelics, stereotypes around the use of psychedelics and your attitudes towards self-experimentation. In total the study takes about 30-40 minutes to complete.
It is important to complete the survey on a pc because one of the tasks does not work on a mobile device.
