Experiential Ketamine Training

for Clinicians

January 27-29, 2023

July 14-16, 2023

This two day experiential training for ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) is for licensed clinicians and experienced interns.

This training will provide clinicians an understanding of the subjective and therapeutic effects of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy from the inside out.  The emphasis will be on creating intention, understanding set and setting, monitoring the client for safety, and integration. 

 

Clinicians will have the opportunity to both practice the skill of being a ketamine-assisted psychotherapist and to be a client receiving treatment. Participants will work in pairs, with each being a client one day and a therapist on the other.  All ketamine sessions will be low dose and participants can choose between sublingual lozenges or intramuscular routes of administration. 

 

Learning Objectives:

    • Integrate knowledge about providing KAP in a group setting 

    • Develop skill in the practice of KAP

    • Understand the therapeutic benefits of ketamine 

    • Utilize ketamine as a tool for psychodynamic exploration

    • Build mindfulness & awareness of the body 

    • Strengthen a sense of inner resourcefulness

Completion of didactic Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy training is a prerequisite for this training.

 

COVID Safety:  In this experiential KAP training, we balance the need for in-person experiential and training with COVID safety by using a combination of safety protocol.  For questions, please contact jessica@temenos.center

 

For questions about the clinical procedures outlined here, contact Jessica at 707-992-5015 or jessica@temenos.center.  

 

It should be noted that enrollment in this training is not a guarantee for acceptance.  Should a participant fail to qualify for the training, fees paid for the course will be fully refunded.  

 

Trainers:  Jim Matto-Shepard, PhD, Carl Spitzer MD, Jessica McIninch, PsyD
