Experiential Ketamine Training
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 with 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.
