It's the most compelling topic in psychotherapy today… and one of the biggest breakthroughs our field has ever seen!

With medicinal psychedelic substances becoming more available throughout the country, Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy (PAP) is poised to change the landscape of therapy as we know it.

Many clients are already asking their therapists about psychedelics, and some are even exploring them on their own.

So, whether you choose to directly incorporate PAP into your practice or not, it's critical that you know enough about this topic to guide your clients in integrating psychedelic-assisted experiences in their daily lives.

That's why we're partnering with the faculty at Fluence, one of the leading organizations for Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy education and research…

to offer this exclusive online course that provides in-depth insight into the most common medicinal psychedelic substances (including MDMA, Ketamine, Ayahuasca, and more)in simple, easy-to-comprehend language, so you'll know exactly how to speak to your clients about this topic.

You'll also hear from therapy leaders Dick Schwartz, Gabor Maté, and others as they share their unique, personal perspectives on what we as therapists need to know to effectively work in this developing therapeutic area.

Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration in Clinical Practice

What do you do when a client lets you know they’re going to use psychedelics on their own? Is there anything you can do to help reduce harm? And what about micro-dosing, which is gaining popularity? This presentation will provide essential information and guidance on how to have these important conversations — including discussions about microdosing, responding to requests for referrals to non-licensed providers, and working with difficult experiences.

Matthew Johnson, PhD
Evidence-Based Therapy Practices in Psilocybin-Assisted Interventions

This workshop will explore modern approaches to psychotherapy using the classic psychedelic compound, psilocybin. This includes a variety of disorders such as substance use, affective, and anxiety disorders. Methods for assuring safety as well as maximizing efficacy will be covered.

Ingmar Gorman, PhD
MDMA-Assisted Therapy in the Treatment of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

Early trial studies show that MDMA has incredible potential to treat PTSD and can even eliminate the diagnosis altogether! With a second trial study nearing completion and the possibility of MDMA becoming an available treatment in the near future, now is your opportunity to get a full and up-to-date understanding of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for your practice.

Seema Desai, MD
New Models for Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy

Ketamine is an FDA-approved medication that has been used for anaesthesia and pain relief in adults and children for many years. However, it has also been researched and used for the treatment of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other "treatment resistant" mental health disorders — with promising results. As Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy gets closer to becoming available for mental health therapists, this is your opportunity to get the latest insights on this developing healing opportunity.

Jeffrey Guss, MD
An Introduction to Ayahuasca for Mental Health Providers

Ayahuasca is one of the most popular and least understood psychedelic agents. In this talk, we'll cover an introduction to ayahuasca, including biochemical, neuroscientific, and historical/cultural aspects of its use. Following this, we'll cover contemporary research on its effects on mental health and its use for the treatment of conditions such as addiction and depression. Lastly, some of the psychodynamic aspects of shamanic and syncretic religious settings will be described.

Gabor Maté, MD
When Psychedelics Hurt: Unpleasant Psychedelic Experiences as a Pathway to Healing

Not all experiences with psychedelics feel good. In fact, it's common for people to experience some level of distress, and without proper guidance, these unpleasant journeys can leave people feeling less integrated than they were before. In this dynamic conversation, Gabor Maté, MD, will present from research and his own extensive experience, ways to reduce the likelihood of harm from psychedelic use, and how unpleasant experiences can be transformed into deeply meaningful and healing experiences.

Victor Cabral, MSW, LSW
Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapies: A Policy Perspective

In anticipation of FDA approval and medicalization, clinicians everywhere are eager to learn more about Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy. But many questions remain unanswered around the current policy landscape and the changes needed to welcome these medicines into our current healthcare system and in psychotherapy. This presentation will provide you with an overview of the history and current state of psychedelic policy and look ahead to what the future holds for clinicians like you to practice psychedelic-assisted therapy.

Phil Wolfson, MD
The Fantastic Effects of Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy: A Revolution in Clinical Practice

Ketamine has been used legally for depression, anxiety, and a host of other mental health conditions. This presentation reviews the key elements of integration strategies specific to the mental health condition being addressed. There are specific nuances of Ketamine treatment that will be outlined and compared to other psychedelics.

Monnica T. Williams, PhD
Psychedelics & Racial Justice

Psychedelics have been studied for the treatment of PTSD, depression, end-of-life anxiety, OCD, addictions, and a number of other mental health conditions. However, research studies of psychedelic psychotherapies have largely excluded people of colour, leaving important questions unaddressed for these populations. Dr. Williams will review relevant research, documenting exclusion based on the international literature. She will discuss ethnic minority mental health and how psychedelic therapies may help or hinder healing for people of colour. Also discussed are the next steps in ensuring that access to culturally-informed care is prioritized as several psychedelics move into late-phase trials and expanded access, including the importance of culturally-informed approaches and education focused on therapy providers of colour.

Dick Schwartz, PhD
The Internal Family Systems Approach to Psychedelic Experiences

The psyche is a delicate ecosystem and psychedelics are powerful agents that can profoundly affect it. While that effect can be positive, there is also the potential for extreme disruption. That's where Internal Family Systems (IFS) can help therapists and clients alike maintain a steady presence and not overreact to sometimes dramatic shifts. In this talk, IFS founder Dick Schwartz will address the probable risks and benefits of incorporating psychedelics in the therapy room.
