This Open House Webinar is intended for those interested in leaning more about the Postgraduate Certificate in Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration. The Fluence Certificate program is designed to teach clinicians to engage in Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration in clinical settings. The Certificate is not a license or authorization to practice therapy in itself, but a course of study covering key elements and experiences, providing exposure to mentors and leaders in the field, and introducing participants to a peer group for ongoing professional support and development.

The live-online event features Fluence leadership and representatives of our teaching and mentoring faculty, as well as a recent program graduate. We welcome all who are interested in the certificate program to attend and meet our staff for a brief overview of the program followed by a Q&A period. All registrants who complete the video will receive an application fee waiver code, $50 Value.
