Building a Psychedelic Medicine Clinic Workshop
Workshop One: Clinical Foundations, Systems, and Procedures
PRATI’s Building a Psychedelic Medicine Clinic Workshop 1 focuses on delivering practical skills to build and run a psychedelic medicine clinic. It was originally recorded on November 14th – 15th, 2020.
The numbers of those struggling with mental illness continues to escalate and our current model of psychological care has many failings. Psychedelic medicine represents a new paradigm in mental health care. The lay and professional interest in this new model of care has exploded in the last few years. A huge number of practitioners are eager to deliver services with MDMA, psilocybin and ketamine in a true psychedelic framework. Let us help you learn how to navigate this new space and gain the skills you need to open your own business.
Using psychedelics as a treatment option will require that providers of care be able to set-up and run a clinic designed specifically for psychedelic medicine. Once rescheduled, MDMA and psilocybin will require specifics in clinical format, setting, and professional training. In spite of a true passion for this work many practitioners do not feel they are ready or able to set up or manage such a clinic, which is why PRATI has designed a course specifically to teach practitioners what they need to know in order to prepare mental health providers to work in psychedelic medicine. We have gathered a diverse and experienced faculty that will prepare you to successfully open a psychedelic medicine clinic.
The second installment of this workshop, PRATI’s Building a Psychedelic Medicine Clinic Workshop 2, offers insight into the future of psychedelic medicine with a focus on core topics that include: clinical setting, practice management, legal considerations, ethical concerns, and marketing plans.
