Event description

Description

The Psychedelic Education and Continuing Care Program provides education and training for clinicians who are interested in learning about psychedelic clinical research and providing harm reduction and integration psychotherapy for people who use, or are thinking about using psychedelics. Our Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration Psychotherapy (PHRIP) Consultation group is a 12-session weekly group meeting for clinicians who have taken our Psychedelics 101 & 102 for Clinicians intensive training or have similar background knowledge. The first group meeting will focus on introductions, format, and an overview of our approach. Subsequent group meeting will commence with the introduction of a specific theory, principal, or topic, followed by a case vignette presented by a group member and discussion. The final group meeting will focus on transitioning to working independently and continued professional development opportunities. Each group participant will have the opportunity to present 1-2 cases through the course of the program.

All participants should be independently licensed psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, or other mental health care providers. This program does not provide supervised hours towards licensure of any kind. Graduate students, trainees, and those working towards licensure under another supervisor will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Admission to the program is rolling and will continue until the group is filled. INTERESTED PARTICIPANTS SHOULD FILL OUT THIS APPLICATION. Applicants will be notified of admission status within 14 days of applying, and have 14 days after notification to remit payment to secure a spot in the program. Space is limited to 10 participants. Group sessions will be lead by either Elizabeth Nielson or Ingmar Gorman on alternating weeks, with both leaders present at the first and last sessions.
