This interactive training includes role plays, demonstrations, case examples, and experiential learning opportunities. This training is co-organized by Fluence.
Your patients are curious and so are you: What is all this about psychedelics being used for treatment of addiction and trauma? This session gives an overview of psychedelic drugs, their history, and current research with MDMA and Psilocybin-assisted therapy. This program includes an overview of recent and current clinical trials, outcomes, legal status, and what it all means for the future of addiction and trauma treatment.
This day introduces clinical skills for psychedelic harm reduction and integration work in the clinical setting. This program focuses on translating research findings into clinical practice including working with patients who are considering using psychedelics, actually using psychedelics, or have used them. Includes discussion of assessment and integration techniques, resources, and legal and ethical issues.
