PSYCHEDELICS ON THE COUCH: INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHEDELICS FOR THERAPISTS, COUNSELORS, AND HELPING PROFESSIONALS
A resurgence of research on psychedelics for common mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addictions, is rapidly shifting emerging practices in mental health care. Illicit substances, including MDMA and psilocybin, have received breakthrough treatment status from the Food and Drug Administration, with MDMA expected to be available by prescription as early as 2021. Certain plant medicines, such as ayahuasca and ibogaine, have ample anecdotal evidence supporting their therapeutic value and are being investigated in clinical trials. Ketamine is already being offered in clinics across the country for depression. Opportunities for therapists and counselors to offer their skills within a new practice model of psychedelic-assisted therapy will increase exponentially over the next decade.
This one-day training is for counselors, therapists, or any helping professional who wants to develop a firmer knowledge base on psychedelics for their ongoing professional competence. We are partnered with the Colorado Counseling Association to offer Continuing Professional Development (CPD) certificates that are good for state licensure requirements. Discounts for CCA members, students, and veterans. Seats are limited, so early registration is highly recommended.
Next offering in early 2020. Registration open soon.
