Dr. Watts shares about the powerful transformation she witnessed in clinical trial participants for psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy. She also reveals the research and insights that led her to create the global online integration community ACER Integration.

Together, Paul and Dr. Watts explore the potential of psychedelics to help restore environmental health and usher new paradigms of growth and healing.

Rosalind Watts, Ph.D.:

Dr. Rosalind Watts is a clinical psychologist and the founder of ACER Integration. As the former clinical lead on the psilocybin for depression trial at Imperial College London, Dr. Watts led a clinical team that facilitated over a hundred psilocybin treatment sessions. Having recognized that safe and effective use of psychedelics requires substantial integration support, Dr. Watts co-founded the UK's first psychedelic integration group, and is now launching a global online integration community, ‘Accept, Connect, Embody, Restore’ (ACER) where members follow a 12-month process together.

Her contributions to the field of psychedelic therapy are numerous and include the development of the ACE model ‘Accept, Connect, Embody’, which has been used in clinical trials of both psilocybin and DMT, as well as the Watts Connectedness Scale, a psychometric tool for measuring outcomes of psychedelic therapy. Dr. Watts sits on the clinical advisory board of the Usona Institute.
