Introduction to Psychedelic-assisted Therapy
Laying the foundations, together
Our continuing education credited introductory psychedelic-assisted therapy training course is designed to help practicing psychologists, psychiatrists, and other medical professionals gain an understanding of psychedelic-assisted therapy.
About this course
This course begins by re-defining the psychiatric model from one of “chemical imbalance” to one rooted in the mind-body-spirit dynamic. With roots in contemporary medical and mental health research, this training program also provides the historical foundation from which psychedelic medicines developed. The didactic course material will cover the various psychedelic medicines currently in use, including an emphasis on psilocybin, MDMA, LSD, iboga, ayahuasca, and ketamine.
This introductory course will also explore how psychedelic-assisted therapy can be integrated into and enhance existing therapeutic modalities, such as internal family systems (IFS), cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), somatic therapy, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
