This video series focuses, step-wise, on building the actual clinical skills interventions you need when in the room with clients in altered states. We introduce you to how to interact with someone when they are altered, how to use ketamine as a psychedelic, how to elicit and deepen different types of content, how to deal with fear states, and much more. How do we incorporate ceremony or understand different, focused uses of music?  How do we safely use touch when someone is altered?

If you need real-world, "nuts and bolts" skills to use with your psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy clients, this will help you immediately up your level of practice.  If you don't find new skills you can use, we will refund your entire investment! That's how confident we are that this video series hits the "high points" of getting started and doing good work in this field. 

Enjoy. And good luck with your learning journey!
