What every clinician needs to know about the new class
of therapeutics propelling mental health treatment into the future

For many clients with PTSD, working through the trauma is too excruciating. That’s why so many drop out of therapy.

But we now have new hope!

Leading research shows adding psychedelic medicines to psychotherapy can quickly improve outcomes when treating trauma, anxiety, depression, and other mental distress.

A study on PTSD published in Nature Medicine in May 2021 revealed 67% of participants treated with three MDMA-assisted sessions no longer met the diagnostic criteria for PTSD 18 weeks after baseline.

Researchers found using MDMA with psychotherapy helps trauma survivors engage with traumatic memories while also reducing the defensiveness and fear normally associated with them...

Allowing the client to deal with whatever problems they’re experiencing... Without being overwhelmed, dissociating, or numbing.

The best part? You can integrate psychedelic medicines with modalities you’re already using.

Now you can be part of this exciting new world of therapy with this all-new online training!

Register today to get skills and strategies that help clients find deep and lasting transformation.

Ongoing clinical trials in the United States, United Kingdom, and Europe will likely result in more psychedelic medicines available for legal use in the U.S.

In fact, we already have access to some of these tools!

In 2020, the FDA granted Breakthrough Therapy Designation (BTD) to a ketamine-based medicine as a treatment for adults with major depressive disorder with acute suicidal ideation or behavior.

It’s the first FDA-approved medicine available shown to reduce depressive symptoms within 24 hours... As opposed to typical antidepressants, which only work for 40%-60% of patients and take weeks or months to work.

As research continues to reveal the healing power of psychedelics, there will be a surge in demand for trained therapists who are ready to conduct psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy.

This online training is an excellent starting point to prepare yourself for this journey. You’ll discover:

  1. Interventions grounded in neuroscience and next-stage medicinal psychedelics

  2. The truth about psychedelics throughout history and across cultures

  3. How these medicines are used in carefully designed clinical trials

  4. How they work in the body and brain

  5. How your clients use them in the real world

  6. And so much more!

It’s important to note the psychedelics themselves are NOT a treatment or a “cure” for a disorder. They are used under your professional supervision as a catalyst to facilitate trauma processing during psychotherapy. Also, psychedelic-assisted therapy is NOT for everyone. But it has been shown to be a useful tool when all else has failed to get the client’s desired results.
