Workshop Description

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is the utilization of the ketamine medication within a therapy session, along with integration therapy sessions after each medicine session. 

An increasing number of clinics are offering ketamine medication treatment as a stand-alone treatment, without any psychotherapy or integration services. Great Salt Lake Wellness and Satori Health are on a mission to train mental health conditions in the ethical use and administration of ketamine treatment via the Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy protocol. Pairing the ketamine medication with talk therapy and integration services facilitates a more robust outcome. Ketamine is the “tool” used in KAP, but the psychotherapy and processing of unresolved trauma and underlying issues is what typically helps treat the mood disorder.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the field of psychedelic medicines and ketamine.
  • Explain proper intake and evaluation processes to assess patients’ suitability for KAP
  • Demonstrate skills specific to KAP
  • Discuss assessing and managing suicidal ideation and appropriateness for KAP
  • Identify multi-cultural applications and Ethics in psychedelic assisted psychotherapy
  • Explain methods for assisting your existing therapy clients when they are receiving ketamine medication treatment at another clinic
  • Identify practice management issues (e.g., legal, insurance, safety)
