Program Description

2:00PM - 4:00PM EST, February 10th & 17th, 2023

  • Attuned touch can enhance healing and the therapeutic process, yet, most clinicians receive little to no training on the ethical use of touch in therapy beyond the fear-based and unfounded rhetoric that "touch is a slippery slope to sexual abuse." This lack of education and fear is at odds with the value of touch in psychedelic therapeutic communities. And, with the recent violations within the field, it has never been more critical that our community of integrative psychedelic professionals receive comprehensive training on ethics and skills of psychotherapeutic touch*tm.

  • This four-hour introductory course offers an opportunity to explore your own touch culture and history and how that impacts your clients. You will learn fundamental ethics and practices around communication and consent, as well as rupture and repair. You'll gain some practical skills for working with clients while attending to the special considerations of working with clients in the Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness.

  • This heart-centered, community focused training is both didactic and experiential. Because 'unknown observers' can decrease safety and community, participants are requested to participate with videos on. A recording of the training will be provided for review for two weeks following the culmination of the training.

Certificate Programs

This course is included in the curriculum for both the Postgraduate Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration Program and the Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy Program.
