Overview In this 16-week intensive, we weave together the Level One didactic curriculum with multiple experiential ketamine sessions for trainees. Online live teaching sessions led by our core team will meet biweekly for 16 weeks. These meetings will build on a video series that outlines the core elements and skills of doing KAP.  Ketamine experiences are woven intentionally throughout the training. These further inform the didactic component, while also creating the potential for personal growth. This training consists of the full teaching and experiential components of our Certificate Program, without the clinical supervision stage. It was developed to meet the needs of clinical professionals wanting to learn concrete skills and further explore the medicine, but who do not yet have an active KAP practice.Click Here to Learn More

In-Person Intensive TrainingThis uniquely experiential training retreat combines quality instruction, two supported ketamine experiences, somatically focused trauma and resiliency frameworks, and nature connection activities to safely and powerfully support you as a participant. The hands-on focus of the training includes set and setting exploration, discussion of preparation and integration, and other directly relevant applied aspects of facilitating psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy sessions with clients.  We intentionally give you access to our introductory video-based didactic curriculum before you arrive, so that your focus during the training retreat can be dedicated to immersion in the experiential aspect and “dropping in” as a participant. Our intent is that your personal experiences with the medicine will reinforce the learning in an experiential fashion to directly support your future work with clients.  Past participants have described this training retreat as both professionally relevant and personally meaningful.Click Here to Learn More

"Consistent with the holistic ideals of CIIS, this certificate strives to encompass all aspects of learning: intellectual/didactic, personal/experiential, and applied.  The research and therapy training is conducted with learning processes embedded in self-reflection, community-building, embodied ways of knowing, and mentoring. Trainees learn a wide variety of necessary skills and knowledge bases, ranging from pharmacology of psychedelics to research design to psychedelic therapist competencies to the history of use of psychoactive plants across the globe to cultural competencies for working with diverse clients.   The program thoroughly covers clinical work with MDMA and psilocybin (the two medicines furthest along in the FDA drug development process) with additional coursework on ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (FDA-approved for specific clinical syndromes). In order to accomplish such a holistic enterprise, the program values and implements the deconstruction of various perspectives and cultural viewpoints, along with didactic and experiential learning with teachers representing diverse specializations. The global wisdom traditions related to alterations of consciousness (meditation, yoga, fasting, solo wilderness retreats, healing methods, etc.) play a role in the theoretical underpinnings of the curriculum, as well as being directly enacted as part of the personal/experiential aspect of the training.   Two core elements for our classes are diversity, inclusion, and belonging as well as navigating the challenges of non-profit and corporate influences in the field. We co-create a culture of belonging throughout the program for all trainees in order to foster safety, empathy, connection, and risk-taking. With special attention given to skill development as a psychedelic-assisted therapist, trainees will increase their cultural competencies and cultural humility, including the capacity for addressing microaggressions and implicit biases. Due to our robust commitment to an inclusive program environment, we conduct focus groups with under-represented recent graduates to assess progress regarding all aspects of diversity, equity, and inclusion in our program."

Description from the Ketamine Training Center website:"COLLABORATIVE MODEL:The training shall provide participants with the opportunity to attain competence, understanding, and the requisite skills for the creation of the appropriate set and setting for KAP. This includes learning the therapeutic modalities and tools necessary for guiding patients who are in non-ordinary states of consciousness.The program will teach a collaborative model that leverages the core competencies of multiple healing disciplines to maximize the therapeutic and personal developmental benefits of this approach. Thus, the program will teach its participants how to work in teams that may combine medical psychological and pastoral practitioners, in which the patient receives both the best possible medical and psychological care and understanding. Team formation will be facilitated by KTC based on the settings and therapeutic objectives of participants. DEVELOPING CORE COMPETENCIES:Participants will learn the skills comprising KAP practice. While we expect that participants will have some familiarity with these, the KTC training program will emphasize the skills unique and germane to KAP. These include:The intake and evaluation of patients’ suitability for KAP.Patient preparation for treatment.Practice management issues (legal, insurance, safety).Facilitation skills unique to KAP—nest building; formulation and planning; ketamine recommendations, induction; meditation; guidance; suggestion, stimulation and pendulation; parts work; working with PTSD and ongoing trauma; working with life threatening illnesses and their personal and systemic trauma; recovery; integration; continuation; ongoing communication; maintenance; termination;, concomitant medication; collaboration with outside practitioners and much more.The unique aspects of ketamine as a medicine for deep psychotherapyManaging adverse effects–both during and after sessionsHanding the interface of the medical, psychotherapeutic, and spiritual aspects as they surface over the course of therapy.Recommended post-treatment services.Facilitating continued exploration, growth and development."Click Here to Learn More

Description of course from the MIND Foundation's website: The Augmented Psychotherapy Training (APT) is a two-year program that provides you with the knowledge and skills you need to practice psychedelic-augmented psychotherapy and psychedelic integration therapy in a legal, safe, and evidence-based framework. In psychedelic-augmented psychotherapy, altered states of consciousness are purposefully induced to promote and augment psychotherapeutic processes. This includes pharmacological (psilocybin, ketamine etc.) and non-pharmacological induction methods (breathwork etc.). Psychedelic integration therapy helps patients/clients draw therapeutic benefits from psychedelic experiences that have taken place (or will take place) outside of the therapy setting. A related goal of integration therapy is to prevent or mitigate psychedelic-induced harm. The APT program follows a hybrid learning model: Over the course of the two training years, four intensive on-site trainings take place in Berlin, Germany. Furthermore, weekly online training sessions in a variety of formats are held over the entire duration of the program. Learn more about the training contents. Click Here to Learn More
