I am conducting an online University study exploring the implicit biases and attitudes between Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy (LSD, Psilocybin, DMT etc) and traditional Pharmacological (Prescribed Medication) Therapy (Prozac, Xanax etc) using the psychological research tool: Implicit Association Test (IAT). This innovative research aims to deepen our understanding of societal perceptions toward various mental health treatments, specifically using psychedelics.

What is the IAT
The Implicit Association Test (IAT) is a tool used in psychology to assess the intensity of an individual's automatic connections between mental concepts (e.g., black people, gay people) and evaluations (e.g., good, bad) or stereotypes (e.g., athletic, clumsy). The main idea is that making a response is easier when closely related items share the same response key. In this study, the IAT is employed to uncover implicit attitudes and biases towards psychedelic therapy as compared to conventional prescribed therapies. It provides a quantitative measure of the implicit, preferences or biases an individual may hold, which might not be accessible through self-report or explicit attitudes.
