About the Event

Please join us for a comprehensive introduction to the practice of Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (“KAP”). In recent years, this innovative therapeutic model has gained momentum, offering a new perspective on healing. In this presentation, we will explore Ketamine’s journey from the operating room to the therapist’s office and delve into its unique properties that make it a promising avenue for psychological healing. Whether you are a “believer” in KAP or not, this presentation will help equip you with the basic knowledge about what KAP really is, what it isn’t and what clients might be appropriate referrals for KAP treatment. Part of this presentation will also include an experiential exercise with non-ordinary states of consciousness which will give you a glimpse of what it feels like to be “in it”.

After this presentation, you will have an understanding of:

  • What Ketamine and Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy are
  • The evolution of Ketamine as a surgical medicine to its use as a psychotherapeutic tool
  • The basis process/protocol of KAP
  • What clients would make good referrals for KAP treatment
  • How non-ordinary states of consciousness can offer new insight and healing potential

** For the experiential portion of this presentation, we encourage participants to create a space ahead of time that feels comfortable, safe, inviting and is free of distraction for the duration of the exercise (about 30 mins). (You will not need to be on camera for this portion of the presentation but will just need access to audio, preferably through the use of headphones or earbuds.) Some things to consider having in your “environment” can include: Eyeshades/Eyemask, Candles and/or ambient lighting, Pillows and blankets, Object(s) of significance placed near you (ex: an object that represents healing, growth, centeredness, love or peace such as a photo, piece of jewelry, note/card, crystals, etc), Journal with a pen, pencil and/or markers.  Please note that all of these things are optional but will help maximize your experience!
