TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cybin Inc. (NEO:CYBN) (NYSE American:CYBN) (“Cybin” or the “Company”), a biopharmaceutical company focused on progressing “Psychedelics to Therapeutics™”, is pleased to announce the publication of a peer-reviewed article introducing EMBARK, a model of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy that integrates leading clinical approaches to promote effective facilitation and supportive healing with psychedelic medicines.
“It’s a pleasure to see our work published in this respected journal. In developing EMBARK, we looked at 17 models of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, and we noticed that many are missing critical elements: a focus on ethics, on human relationships, on the body as a site of somatic healing, and on evidence-based practices. We designed EMBARK to overcome some of these limitations as an integrative model of psychedelic therapy. We’d like to honor the contributions of many teachers and leaders in the field who have helped chart this course,” said Alex Belser, PhD, EMBARK’s co-creator and Cybin’s Chief Clinical Officer.
The article was published on June 2, 2022 in the peer-reviewed journal Frontiers in Psychology and is titled, “Models of Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy: A Contemporary Assessment and an Introduction to EMBARK, a Transdiagnostic, Trans-Drug Model.” Written by EMBARK’s co-creators, Bill Brennan, PhD and Alex Belser, PhD, Cybin’s Chief Clinical Officer, the article provides a detailed overview of EMBARK to the academic and clinical communities. Frontiers in Psychology is the largest journal in the field of psychology.
“We are excited to present our model to the field in a way that highlights its thoughtfulness and responsiveness to current concerns in psychedelic research. We have listened carefully to what has worked, and what has been found lacking, and offer EMBARK as an innovative step forward,” said Bill Brennan, PhD, EMBARK’s co-creator.
