Overview Thank you for your interest in our Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy  Certificate Program!  We welcome your interest and are glad you are considering joining us for this innovative and experientially oriented training program. This program is intended for trained clinical professionals who are interested in learning advanced, cutting-edge techniques in how to effectively work with psychedelic altered states in clinical settings.  Growing as a psychedelic therapist is best done in community and through trusted mentoring relationships.  Each training starts with an exclusive cohort that has been individually selected after having met our admissions criteria.  With close mentoring and supervision, your cohort will move through the process together, supporting each other through this intensive learning process and practice. We believe direct experience with this medicine is an essential foundation from which to build a practice in psychedelic medicine. The intent is for you to not only learn how to effectively use ketamine, but also to experience first-hand the powerful effects of the medicine.  Therefore, each training cohort will participate in seven to eight individual and group ketamine journeys to develop a felt sense of the different methods of administration and dose ranges.  Guided by our experienced staff, the processing of these personal experiences will further inform your ongoing training and supervision.  In terms of direct client care, you will progress to recieveing guidance and supervision doing altered state work with clients in our outpatient clinic.  As you progress through the program, you will become increasingly autonomous in this work.  One-on-one supervision by an expert therapist is available throughout.  This allows us to meet you where you are at with your existing skills, while also supporting you in developing your own unique skill sets and ability to work with increasing independence.  Our goal is that by the time you have graduated from our program, you will have already worked autonomously in multiple psychedelic sessions.   You will graduate this certificate program confident, fully prepared, and ready to immediately begin your practice in psychedelic assisted psychotherapy.  You will know you have had more training time in altered state work than graduates from any other training program, and you will have benefitted from direct supervision from some of the most experienced clinical professionals in the country.  This will allow you to quickly develop your own unique niche at the cutting edge of this rapidly growing field.Click Here to Learn More

"The Naropa Center for Psychedelic Studies is an innovative center of excellence for psychedelic-assisted care and sacred encounter. NCPS is rooted in an ecologically-based mission to relieve suffering and enhance the human experience. Our psychedelic studies offerings are grounded in contemplative training and compassion practices—an orientation we believe is essential for ethical and engaged psychedelic therapists. The Certificate in Psychedelic-Assisted Therapies reflects a deep regard for justice, equity, diversity and inclusion across the program and curriculum. Through cultivating meaningful relationships with our Indigenous partners, and inviting authentic conversations with faculty from diverse communities, we seek to address the ongoing impacts of colonization and systems of oppression in the field of psychedelic-assisted therapy. Through collaborating with partners who share our values and our commitment to equity in the field of psychedelic care, our training embodies values that Naropa brings to all of our academic and non-degree curricular offerings."

"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."
