Building a Psychedelic Medicine Clinic Workshop

Weekend One: Clinical Foundations, Systems, and Procedures – November 14th – 15th, 2020

Join PRATI in November for WEEKEND ONE of their two-part business training to learn how to build and operate a psychedelic medicine clinic. The conference will be held in front of a small, live audience in beautiful Denver, CO as well as streamed online to a virtual audience. Come learn from the experts how to build and run your own psychedelic medicine clinic.

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.

Our program will be delivered over four days (two weekends) as a live event or attended remotely. Weekend One is focused on the most basic elements of business management (Clinical Foundations), as well as Clinic Systems and Procedures. Weekend Two is focused on Psychedelic Clinic Specifics, as well as Community, Teams and Planning.  The two weekend courses are separate curriculum and can be taken in either order.  We suggest that you consume the material in this order (weekend one followed by weekend two), but it is not mandatory nor will it reduce the usefulness of this material. You can choose to attend either weekend or both weekends – it is completely up to you.

ATTENTION: The event for purchase on this webpage is for the FIRST WEEKEND ONLY. Weekend One will be held in front of a small, live audience in beautiful Denver, CO (at Knew Conscious), as well as streamed online to a virtual audience.

While this event will be the first of it's kind, PRATI has received positive reviews for its other trainings. Here are some reviews for our Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy workshops:

This training blew me away. I did not expect it to be so full of heart and so full of practical, clinical skill building tools as a therapist. I feel confident that I am capable of integrating KAP into my practice after this weekend and supported by the staff at PRATI throughout the process. I would highly recommend this training.
- Dori Lewis, LPC

The psychedelic renaissance happening now brings with it much excitement as well as many challenges.The level of leadership, professionalism, knowledge (and playfulness) exhibited in this training is unmatched in this field. After nine years as a therapist, I have a new found enthusiasm and hope for the future of mental health and overall well-being.
- Dan Ronken, Inclusion Recovery LLC

This training provided the essential elements of embarking on the development of Psychedelic Medicine practice. Coupling experiential segments with didactic sessions brings a unison of intellect and lived experience, which enables participants to begin practice almost immediately. The faculty and staff were open, responsive and accessible, making this training worth it's weight in gold.
- Deb Azorsky, MA, LPC, CST

PRATI's training highlights the power of intention and personal growth that can be evoked by ketamine assisted psychotherapy. By steeping participants in the research, principles, and experience of ketamine assisted therapy, all involved are able to walk away with the confidence and skills needed to truly evoke transformation in their client. A profoundly magical and life changing experience.
- Dylan Rivard

I got more from the experiential components of this training than I had in all of the psychotherapy I've done combined. I can not wait to spread this gift to my clients.
- Melissa Quinn, M.D.

One of the best trainings I have ever attended. Brilliant staff who createted a near perfect learning environment. I came away feeling clear about the application of Ketamine to a therapy practice.
- Sue Maclaren LPC, LAC, former Arapahoe House Clinic Trainer extrodinaire

Scott Shannon has assembled an excellent team of clinicians who see healing as both science and artform. The training they provide reflects that, and empowers future clinicians to provide both precision and depth to the therapy they offer their clients.
- Nick B.

This was a life changing training.
- Maggie Sharpe

PRATI provides an exceptional training in ketamine and psychedelic-assisted therapy. The training included a well-rounded body of information on all aspects of psychedelic work. PRATI holds an obviously high standard of ethics, integrity, knowledge and research, and the facilitators created a safe, fun, and connected learning environment that supported both intellectual knowledge and embodied experience. I left feeling competent and ready to bring this work into my practice.
- Gail Margolis, MA, LPC

The most profound experiential training. Do this for yourself and for your clients. What a gift!!!
- Dawn Fabian, PMHNP

The team at PRATI is dedicated to expanding access to the transformative power of psychedelic medicine by training compassionate, ethical, whole-health professionals. Their attention to detail and ability to create an effective learning environment were unparalleled in my nearly four decades as a student. When the training was finished, I was both energized and grounded.
