Introduction to Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Course
If you are interested in taking the first step to being involved in psychedelic-assisted therapy please sign up for the Introduction to Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Course.
Whatever your current role is in providing healthcare or counseling to clients or patients, whether you are a healthcare professional or just thinking about working in this field, whether you work in the public or private sector, if you are interested in psychedelic-assisted therapy, this course is a great place to start for you. With this course you will learn enough about psychedelic-assisted therapy to be able to confidently answer clients/patients questions and have in-depth conversations with peers.
You will be part of ATMA’s community after taking this course, and be kept up to date on developing regulations where you live and practice. You will be able to engage with peers going through our clinical trials as well as those offering psychedelic-assisted therapy starting this year. Keep in the loop so you can find where your talent and expertise can be applied when psychedelic-assisted therapy is legal in your jurisdiction.
Advanced Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Certification Program
If you are interested in adding psychedelic-assisted therapy to your practice, please sign up for our Advanced PaT Certification Program*
*Please note that the Introduction to PaT Course is a requirement for the Advanced PaT Certification Program
As an appropriately trained healthcare provider, you already have substantial education and supervised practice. The focus of ATMA’s training programs is on the applications and intricacies of using psychedelic medicines as a therapeutic tool. Rather than training therapists to be therapists, ATMA works with therapists and aspiring psychedelic guides alike to develop competencies specific to the use of psychedelic medicines in mental health treatment.
Physicians & Prescribers PaT Course
If you are a doctor, prescriber or psychiatrist who will be prescribing psychedelics, or simply wants to learn more about them, please sign up for our Physicians & Prescribers Course.
Physicians will play a key role in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy. Like all drugs in consideration for public accessibility, safety becomes the overarching concern for regulators and consumers alike. While physicians and prescribers generally do not provide direct mental health therapy or provide psychedelic prescriptions, doctors will need to participate in the psychedelic revolution to ensure this effective and revolutionary treatment is safely delivered to the public.
In-person Training and Clinical Trial Participation
If you would like to participate in an MDMA or psilocybin clinical trials (must meet eligibility criteria), please sign up for our Advanced PaT Certification Program to obtain one of the key eligibility requirements.
We are working with Health Canada and other partners to conduct multiple clinical trials evaluating the safety and efficacy of psilocybin and MDMA in therapy settings.
Clinical trials are available for registered frontline healthcare workers who have completed an approved psychedelic-therapy training program, similar to ATMA’s training programs.

Demand for Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Providers is Growing
The demand for quality education and training programs in psychedelic-assisted therapy will outstrip the supply available very quickly as Oregon and Australia prepare for legalization under very different regulations in 2023. There simply isn’t an ability to train that many therapy providers and prescribers as fast as clients will be seeking services. This surge of demand will create a bottleneck as service providers scramble to find available training. ATMA is working to make training available in a timely manner but we urge those interested to begin now and not wait till the bottleneck occurs.
Our programs and platform will fully prepare mental healthcare professionals, especially those in Australia, British Columbia, Alberta, Oregon, California, Washington, Idaho, and Nevada who can begin their education and training now, to begin practicing legal psilocybin-assisted therapy as early as this year, under Oregon’s legal Psilocybin Services and Australia’s legalization of MDMA and psilocybin therapy.
