About This Course

This is a non-contact HOME STUDY training based on a live training that was recorded.

Ketamine is an effective treatment for various mental health conditions including major depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and bipolar disorder. The efficacy of ketamine is significantly enhanced when combined with psychotherapy. Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy or (KAP) utilizes the key principles of proper screening, preparation, set, setting, preparation, dosage, and integration to optimize safety/efficacy. Compelling evidence has been published across the country from leading universities such as Johns Hopkins on the use of psychedelic medicines such as psilocybin, MDMA, and ketamine to treat mental health conditions that do not respond to traditional pharmaceuticals. Ketamine is the first legal psychedelic medicine that is available to the U.S. public. In 2019, the FDA approved an intranasal formulation of ketamine, Spravato, which received breakthrough designation from the FDA. Ketamine is being hailed as the most significant development in psychiatry since the advent of SSRIs and has been shown consistently in the research to rapidly reverse suicidality. The purpose of this training is to discuss the history, pharmacology, literature, and utilization of KAP in the treatment of mental health disorders.
