COD Hosts 'Changing Attitudes Toward Psychedelics in Therapy, Biology and Culture'

By Robyn Johnson

College of DuPage Adjunct Human Services faculty Bruce Sewick recently organized a free program on "Changing Attitudes Toward Psychedelics in Therapy, Biology and Culture" – the second in a series of free presentations on this topic. Attended by 45 students and community members, the program included presentations by Tom Roberts, Ph.D., author of Psychedelic Future of the Mind (pictured above, right), Bob Wold, founder of Cluster Busters (pictured center) and Sewick, LCPC, RDDP, CADC, an adjunct faculty member who teaches a course called "Psychedelic Mindview" at COD.

The first in the series, "Psychedelics in the 21st Century," took place in November 2012. In addition, Sewick is planning another free public presentation on Nov. 16, 2013, titled "Molecules, Mind-States and Mystical Experiences – Insights from Psychedelics." Videos from the June presentation were filmed and edited by the College's Multimedia Services department and are available for public viewing:

Sewick's course at College of DuPage, "Psychedelic Mindview," will be available for the first time ever in an online format this spring. For more information, contact Sewick at sewick@cod.edu.
