In the last two decades, psychedelics have re-emerged as promising novel agents for treatment of a broad range of mental health conditions including depression, PTSD, substance use disorders, end-of-life anxieties, eating disorders, and more. Our understanding of their putative mechanisms of action has significantly evolved as well. Several Phase II and III clinical trials of psychedelic-assisted therapy (PAT) using psilocybin and MDMA are either complete or nearing completion, with some of these therapies projected to receive FDA approval within the next couple of years.

Experiences of feeling haunted and of being in the presence of ghosts are prominent in narratives of patients/people of color in the United States and of mixed-race identity. A creative reading of Hans Loewald’s evocative statement on therapeutic action, the process of transforming “ghosts into ancestors,” is used to explore a way of being with and healing patients with mixed-race identities who are imprisoned in melancholic states.

The presentation begins with an introduction by Michael Garrett, MD, who briefly summarizes the recent renewed interest in trauma-informed psychotherapeutic treatments for psychotic conditions. Dr. Garrett then introduces a series of interviews he conducted with seven PGYIII psychiatric residents who describe the impact that training in psychological approaches to psychosis had on their treatment of their psychotic patients and the effect of this training on their developing identities as early career psychiatrists.

The adoption and mental health fields have viewed adoption as being only about children. Adopted adolescents are a more recent afterthought, with adults nowhere on the radar. From their psychodynamic perspectives on the psychology of being adopted, the presenters maintain that therapists often do not recognize the critical differences between adopted and non-adopted patients, or the need for important modifications in treatment. This requires specialized advanced training.

Since 2020, “The Summer of Racial Reckoning,” professionals across fields and industries began to pay laser-like attention to issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice. Assessment professionals in various settings have struggled and, in some cases, plainly stated that these topics are too political to have relevance for our work.

Radical ethics, a philosophical position recognizing the priority of the other over the ego, specifically concerns the other’s suffering. It refuses to see the other as an instance of a category or concept, and therefor holds immense significance for workers in any mental health profession. But it can seem to deny, or minimize the needs of these workers, or of any individual’s needs in the face of the other’s suffering, and thus comes up against undeniable human limitations. It also raises the psychoanalytic problem of masochism.

This presentation will focus on South Korean television series known as “K-drama,” a genre that tells stories in 16-20 one-hour episodes. The stories focus on individuals in crisis, who resolve their issues in several steps that lead to a deeper engagement with their friends and family. This “team” then is able to tackle larger problems of the society. This optimistic drama form offers insight, drawn from the syncretic philosophical and religious traditions of Korea, into the recovery of individuals and groups, from an array of traumas and social upheavals.
