Psychedelic Psychotherapy Training for Mental Health, Medical & Healing Arts Professionals
The re-emergence of psychedelics in psychology is the single most significant advancement in the field of mental health since its inception. We know how difficult or even impossible healing can be without the support of these medicines combined with therapy. We believe that healing is our right, and psychedelic treatment should be accessible to anyone for whom it is appropriate. As such, we support a grass roots model making legal psychedelic therapy widely accessible. In contrast to a medicalized, expensive, and heavily regulated framework which unfortunately comes with FDA approval of psychedelic drugs, or a pharmaceutical profit driven approach that determines the roll out of these medicines in our society, there is a pathway for you, the private practice practitioner, to be a part of a grass roots movement making psychedelic therapy far more widely accessible, far sooner.
Yes, there is a pathway for you to provide legal, inexpensive, psychedelic therapy to your clients, in your private practice setting, today. We developed a psychedelic specific therapy model, Psychedelic Somatic Interactional Psychotherapy (PSIP), that uncovers and amplifies the psychedelic properties of easily accessible, legal substances such as cannabis (or ketamine) which become potent psychedelic medicines when paired with an appropriate modality. The therapeutic healing intelligence is in the process, the therapeutic relationship, and innately in the unconscious mind. Our focus is on those elements, not on any particular medicine, to create the healing response you can see throughout the videos on this site. We have been providing this work clinically for years, this is how you can do it as well for your clients.
PSIP is not an integration or sitter school, it is a full psychedelic therapy training course through which you can provide legal psychedelic somatic therapy to your clients
in your private practice
The PSI psychedelic therapy training program is a full psychotherapy training composed of a single in-person 5 day module followed by an 8 month apprenticeship with weekly supervision (first 6 weeks) and bi-weekly supervision after that. The program is not a sitter school or training for spiritual exploration or group ceremonial work but an individual therapy model designed to address mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, complex childhood trauma, dissociation and other symptoms of PTSD. You will learn theory and get hands-on experience with the Psychedelic Somatic Interactional Psychotherapy (PSIP) model that was specifically designed to operate inside of and support the altered state of consciousness created by psychedelic medicines.
Program cost: $3,200
8 month supervision: $375 / month
Instruction will be provided by PSI Director of Education, Saj Razvi, LPC. Saj was a former clinical researcher in the MAPS Study of MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy for Treatment Resistant PTSD. He has taught graduate students and professional therapists since 2008, and PTSD studies at the University of Denver.
