Experiential Ketamine Training

for Clinicians

A legal, safe and easy approach to learning about  psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy.* 

 

Ketamine, used as an adjunct to psychotherapy, can provide an experience of being able to handle the difficulties of life. It assists clients to uncover and speak about aspects of their history that have been too difficult to face, and increases their ability to be in relationship with defensive structures without denying or acting them out.

 

This experiential group training will provide clinicians an understanding of the subjective and therapeutic effects of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy from the inside out.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the structure of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy. 

  • An experience of the therapeutic benefits of ketamine 

    • As a psycholytic tool 

    • To build mindfulness & awareness of the body 

    • To strengthen a sense of inner resourcefulness
