2022 Current Topics in Behavioral Neurosciences Publication on the Effects of Setting on Psychedelic Experiences, Therapies, and Outcomes

In this peer-reviewed publication, IAM Lab releases the first scoping review undertaken to identify the extent to which effects of setting and aesthetics on psychedelic experiences and therapies have been explicitly studied. The review included 43 studies that indicate apparent consensus regarding the importance of setting in psychedelic therapies, as well as consistent interest in theorizing about these effects. The study also highlights disparities and gaps in the research, as well as extensive opportunities for further theory-driven, practice-based research, which in turn will continue to inform evidence-based practice.
