About the presentation:

Discover the transformative potential of ketamine therapy. This 1.5-hour presentation will give
you a foundational understanding of how ketamine therapy is helping change how we think about
mental health. Designed specifically for licensed therapists, our presentation offers a nuanced
exploration of ketamine's journey from an anesthetic to a therapeutic catalyst, providing practical
knowledge on its mechanisms, applications, and integration into therapeutic practices.
Join us to learn about ketamine’s healing properties to identify ideal candidates for treatment.
We’ll focus on how therapists can use this powerful medicine to improve their patient’s outcomes.
We’ll also address crucial aspects such as risks, safety measures, ethical considerations, and cost
implications for both therapists and patients. By dispelling common misconceptions and setting
realistic expectations, we aim to equip therapists with the knowledge and confidence to consider
ketamine therapy as a valuable tool in their practice. Whether you're new to the concept or
seeking to deepen your understanding, this presentation is a good opportunity to stay at the
forefront of behavioral health.
