The Therapeutic Use of Ketamine and Cannabis
How to Legally Integrate Psychedelics Into Your Psychotherapy Practice
April 15 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am
Workshop participants will learn about Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), an innovative treatment approach that combines ketamine administration in a safe and supportive set and setting with inner- directed and supportive psychotherapy and ongoing integration. In addition, you will learn the science behind the use of cannabis as a therapeutic agent, that allows clients to process trauma somatically, thus releasing its effects from the system.
In March 2019, ketamine was approved by the U.S. FDA for the treatment of treatment-resistant depression in adults, and it became the first legal psychedelic to be used therapeutically since the 1960s. With the approval of medical marijuana in 37 states, cannabis is available as well, allowing psychotherapists to collaborate with medical professionals in providing these powerful healing modalities to not only depressed clients, but those with PTSD, anxiety, OCD, and a host of other mental health symptoms. Ketamine is also highly beneficial in supporting clients to reduce or eliminate other psychotropic medications.
Through case study examples, you will learn how essential your role as a psychotherapist is in increasing the efficacy of these treatments, as well as ways you can begin the process of training and collaboration with the medical community.
