KAP Training Program
PRATI believes that ketamine is the best tool to learn the fundamentals of practicing psychedelic medicine. Join our experienced family of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) providers to learn about this powerful modality and use ketamine as a jumping-off point to explore the transformative potential of psychedelic therapy. Our KAP Training program incorporates practical skills, clinical research, and supported ketamine experiences to inform and empower you in this emerging field.

What you will learn
PRATI’s immersive KAP training approach combines didactic presentations with experiential components in a retreat-style setting. The training experience involves work in dyads as well as large and small groups, offering a variety of opportunities for connection and learning. Over the four days, we will co-create a container for deep personal and professional growth supported by PRATI’s expert faculty and catalyzed by your own exploration of ketamine medicine. As group cohesion is a vital component of the training, we require all participants to stay on-site at the venue throughout the duration of the course.
In addition to preparing you for the clinical application of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, this unique program provides a grounding in the foundations of psychedelic medicine. Participants will gain practical skills and hands-on knowledge including:
- Two optional experiential sessions with ketamine (sublingual and intramuscular) supported by a fellow trainee.
- KAP and psychedelic medicine preparation and integration.
- Guiding clients through non-ordinary states of consciousness.
- Tools for eliciting transformative sessions.
- Music playlist development, rationale, and curation.
- Clinical care of severely depressed and suicidal individuals.
- Best practices for dosing and routes of administration.
- Ethical considerations within KAP and psychedelic medicine.
- Discussion of set and setting, ceremony and ritual aspects for KAP.
- Community building and networking opportunities.
