This 2-day training is designed for clinicians and healthcare providers who want to learn more about current psychedelic research and clinical practice, including how to work with patients who have a history of psychedelic use or have expressed an interest in using psychedelics.
Day 1 of this training will give you an overview of psychedelic drugs, and the current research with MDMA and psilocybin-assisted therapy. We will review recent and current clinical trials, outcomes, legal status, and what it all means for the future of addiction and trauma treatment.
We will also cover:
Historical justifications for psychedelic clinical research
Key theoretical approaches to psychedelic-assisted therapy
The state of psychedelic clinical research and rescheduling efforts
How psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy works with clients
We will also compare psychedelic integration psychotherapy both peer and shamanic settings.
Day 2 of this training introduces skills for psychedelic harm reduction and integration work in clinical settings, focusing on how to translate research findings into clinical practice.
•Discuss assessment and integration techniques, resources, and legal and ethical issues
•Learn to assess clients for key “red flags,” indicating psychiatric care is needed after a psychedelic experience
•Utilize principles of psychedelic-assisted therapy in initial assessments of clients who report psychedelic use
•Explore contraindications and discuss high-risk clients who are contemplating psychedelic use
•Describe the therapist’s role in a client’s integration psychotherapy process
Note: Limited enrollment. Recommended for licensed mental health care providers with an existing understanding of psychedelic-assisted therapy and psychedelic integration as well as health care providers.
