dc.description.abstractThis paper will review the current literature on modalities used or proposed for psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy. Modalities have been offered for the treatment of depression, addiction, and the demoralisation of long term AIDS survivors. In comparing these modalities, I aim to highlight their similarities and differences, while also seeking any evidence to suggest the benefits of one modality over another. In reviewing the current literature, the intent is to learn best practices and then coalesce generalisable best practices for psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy. Given the early stage of modality creation in this field and the general knowledge regarding the similar efficacy of modalities, I hypothesize that there will not be evidence to promote a particular modality. However, I do believe that there will be commonly held best practices amongst the modalities which can be gleaned. Five modalities were found for study in this review with information found from a combination of completed studies, modality manuals, and explanatory articles. The result is that there is no evidence to suggest a best modality for psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy. There are, however, many generally accepted and evidence-based best practices. As researchers, therapists, or clients, I hope this work informs regarding current evidence in the field, best practices, and areas for future research.en_US
