It’s now widely accepted among professionals in the psychedelic community that psychedelics will be legal, in therapeutic contexts, in the next decade. That means that we’ll need an entire infrastructure to support that, and one of the key components will be therapists who are competent in helping people prepare for, navigate, and process their psychedelic experiences.
In recent years, a number of programs and schools have emerged in preparation for the forthcoming psychedelic medical paradigm, from weekend-long trainings to degrees. Where does a person who wants to help others with their psychedelic experiences begin? If you’re a licensed counselor of some kind already, what are the best next steps for becoming trained in psychedelic integration therapy? What do trainings like this entail? What makes for a good psychedelic therapist anyway? And if you’re not a licensed counselor—say a journey facilitator without a degree in counseling or just a person who wants to get into the psychedelic field—what are your options? We’ll explore all this and more in our 90-minute webinar with Dr. Ingmar Gorman. There will also be time for questions from our community at the end.
