Frequently Asked Questions
Unlike other educational opportunities, this course paints the most complete picture of how psychedelic medicine and other altered-state healing practices (such as breathwork and music therapy) can evolve the trauma treatment process and elevate your practice.

Expert clinician Linda Curran hand selected a variety of premiere providers familiar with these medications and practices — including several modality-founding trauma experts, like Stephen Porges (the Polyvagal Theory) and Richard Schwartz (Internal Family Systems) — to discuss the ways they have revolutionized treatment.

Through a combination of research findings and captivating interviews, this program seeks to inform, explain, and evaluate the role of psychedelic medicine and Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy for clinical practice and efficacy. You'll cover both pharmaceutical and plant-based medicines — including MDMA, psilocybin, ketamine, ayahuasca, psychedelic cannabis, and more.

Discover how these methods can provide longer lasting results, faster, without further traumatizing your clients and get answers to their questions about PAP, even if you can't offer the services yourself.
Just because the laws where you work don't allow you to administer psychedelic medicine, doesn't mean your clients won't have important questions about this increasingly popular practice. In fact, they could already be experimenting by micro-dosing outside of sessions with you.

This course will prepare you to expertly support them on their treatment journey by knowing the different types of psychedelic medications available — both pharmaceutical and plant-based varieties — as well as how each medication treats unique trauma wounds and recognizing the appropriate time and setting for each option.

You'll also get the somatic therapy techniques you need to help clients process their psychedelic experiences because PAP is not meant to replace psychotherapy, but rather enhance the healing results.

Plus, this training is packed full of non-psychedelic forms of altered-state healing, including breath and sound work, that are proven ways to treat trauma regardless of laws and location.
You'll have unlimited access to all course materials (video modules, online forums, and more!) as soon as you register, so there's no pressure to rush through the content.

This training was designed for (and by!) busy clinicians like you to be completed around your own schedule.
With nearly 12 hours of online video training, we encourage you to take the time to fully absorb everything. Watch the videos. Get your CE hours. You won't be disappointed with this highly effective Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy (PAP) training your colleagues recommend!
