Latest developments in neuroscience

Adele will speak about her latest research in the field of emotions, spirituality and psychedelic medicine relevant to eating disorders, an overview of the proposed application of different medicines, with practical examples, and the potential benefits for individuals experiencing eating disorders.

A frequent keynote speaker at professional conferences, Adele has published extensively in the field of emotion and health, including a clinical manual on EFFT published by the American Psychological Association.

She is passionate about helping parents to support their kids in a way that is informed by the latest developments in neuroscience. The knowledge and tips in her book, What to Say to Kids When Nothing Seems to Work is an effort to do just that.  With colleagues, she also makes a wealth of caregiving resources available at no cost at Mental Health Foundations.

Adele is also a leader in the research and practice of psychedelic medicine, with a focus on ayahuasca, MDMA, psilocybin and ketamine. Currently, she is the clinical investigator and strategy lead for the MAPS-sponsored MDMA-assisted psychotherapy study for eating disorders and a collaborator/clinical support on the Imperial College study for psilocybin and anorexia nervosa. She is a founding member of the Love Project.

Adele has a particular interest in mechanisms and models of healing, including emotion processing, spirituality and family-based psychedelic psychotherapy. She is a frequent contributor in the media relating to emotion, health and the science of psychedelics.

Note: Psychedelic medicine is an emerging area of research and such treatments are not currently available outside of clinical studies.

Bookings are essential here for this special event.
