Why Group Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy is a must try!

Group psychedelic psychotherapy offers several advantages over Individual Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy or IV Ketamine. Here’s why:

 

 

We have seen the long history of group work  in ceremonial, recreational, and indigenous contexts with psychedelics and plant medicines. Many indigenous cultures have these experiences sewn into the fabric of their culture. It is commonplace to welcome an individual back after their own experience, support them as they reintegrate into their society, and play an integral part in their healing process. 

 

In group settings, individuals can share their experiences during and after the psychedelic journey. This shared experience fosters a sense of connection, validation, and support among participants, which can be profoundly therapeutic. Knowing that others are going through similar experiences can reduce feelings of isolation and enhance feelings of belonging and acceptance.

 

Group therapy can create a collective healing environment where individuals not only work on their personal issues but also contribute to the healing of others. Witnessing others’ growth and progress can be inspiring and motivating, leading to deeper insights and breakthroughs for all participants.

 

 

Group therapy brings together individuals from diverse backgrounds, each with their own unique perspectives, insights, and challenges. This diversity enriches the therapeutic process, as participants can learn from each other’s experiences, gain new insights, and develop empathy and understanding for different perspectives.

 

 

Group therapy sessions are often more cost-effective than individual sessions, making psychedelic therapy more accessible to a broader range of individuals. This affordability can reduce barriers to treatment and increase the availability of psychedelic therapy for those in need.

 

 

Overall, group psychedelic psychotherapy offers a unique and powerful therapeutic approach that leverages the collective wisdom, support, and healing potential of the group dynamic. By fostering connection, sharing, and mutual support, group therapy can enhance the therapeutic outcomes of psychedelic therapy and promote deeper personal growth and transformation.
