Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy Practicum

What is the KAP Practicum?

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.  

The Process

1) We will meet by Zoom weekly to discuss best practices for a taking a patient start to finish through Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy.
2) You will facilitate two KAP treatments with your own patient at the Ko-Op with onsite supervision.
NASW-PA Chapter is a co-sponsor of this workshop. 9 CEs will be awarded for completion of this course. NASW has been designated as a pre-approved provider of professional continuing education for social workers (Section 47.36), Marriage and Family Therapist (Section 48.36) and Professional Counselors (Section 49.36) by the PA State Board of Social Workers, Marriage & Family Therapists and Professional Counselors."

Group Ketamine Experience for Mental Health Professionals

What is the Group KAP Experience?

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.  

The Process

Protocol for the Experience
1) A 30-minute virtual medical and psychiatric assessment.
The fee for the Medical Evaluation is $250.00 and this includes Participants sublingual ketamine lozenges for the two dosing sessions.

2) A Virtual Q&A Preparation Session 1 hour

3) Medicine Session Including Group Preparation and Integration (3.5hr)

4) Virtual Integration session (1hr)

*If you have out of network benefits, you may be able to submit portions to your insurance for reimbursement; however, we cannot guarantee reimbursement. Please reach out for updated fees and dates.
This is a closed group, meaning that the same members will participate each time and it will not be open to any new members for the duration of the series. Group participants will need to commit for the entire series.
Next Steps
If you are interested in joining the next group, please review the schedule below and then contact us below to fill out the screening questionnaire and schedule your 15-minute screening call to determine preliminary eligibility.


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.
