For mental health professional who want to grow clinically and personally in the field of psychedelic medicines
The 6-week virtual training provides a step-by-step guide that will leave clinicians feeling confident and ready to provide KAP to patients.
For clinicians interested in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, the place to start is with your own direct experience with the medicine as a patient.
In our work with Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy we have noticed that many clinicians participate in expensive and extended training only to be left anxious to facilitate their own KAP session. The intention of the KAP Practicum is to support therapists concretely with providing KAP to their own patients. The 6-week virtual training provides a step-by-step guide that will leave clinicians feeling confident to bring their own client into a supervised practicum experience at the Ko-Op.
For clinicians interested in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, the place to start is with your own direct experience with the medicine as a patient. A medicine journey provides clinicians with firsthand insight into how powerful this medicine can be and ways to make therapeutic use of the experience.
Whether clinicians want to be able to support their patients in accessing psychedelic assisted psychotherapy with other clinicians, or eventually offer and integrate this into their clinical work in becoming a Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist, this is an opportunity to experience the medicine alongside other interested colleagues.
We are offering this group KAP treatment to therapists in person at the The Ko-Op in Center City Philadelphia and remotely (over Zoom). This is a brief (two session) treatment for clinicians who meet the psychiatric criteria to receive KAP.
While we cannot guarantee what sort of experience you will have during the ketamine session, some people do have challenging experiences. We will be present to support you through the dosing session. Even though the experience may be challenging, it may also bring to light important issues to address during integration.
For those who wish to continue working after the group is over, we will work with you to ensure that you are connected to another psychotherapist who is trained in ketamine to work with you individually.
There is no prerequisite to be in therapy to join the group, however, we require all participants to be connected with some mental health resources that they can access for support after the completion of the program. This can include an individual therapist, group therapy, psychiatrist, coach, etc. since after the group, we will not be able to provide ongoing clinical support. We will offer referral resources for people who are interested in additional treatment.
We will evaluate friends who wish to join on a case-by-case basis. While this may work, issues may arise in group cohesion, and we may ask friends to separate.
You might be a fit for the group if you are working through depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD and other clinical diagnoses. Some people may require a higher level of care, and during the initial assessment interview, we will determine whether we are able to accommodate you in the group.
