Ketamine for Clinicians 

November 16-17, 2019, 10am-5pm | The Center for Optimal Living, NYC

IKetamine has emerged in the last decade as a novel, highly efficacious, and currently available treatment for depression and mood disorders. This training is designed for clinicians and mental healthcare providers who want to gain a better framework for using ketamine therapy for mental health, as well as those who want to learn how this treatment can be incorporated into their existing clinical practices.

In this course you will learn how to work with patients undergoing ketamine treatments and what is known about the combinations of ketamine and psychotherapy to improve long-term patient outcomes and wellbeing. This interactive training includes demonstrations, case examples, experiential learning, and role-play exercises.

While ketamine is a powerful and at times life-saving tool, ensuring safe, effective treatment routes for patients is not as straightforward as writing a prescription. This course will review the options available to practitioners in New York City looking to help their patients access this treatment and see them through the process of integrating it into ongoing psychotherapy and clinical care.

This training is presented by The Center for Optimal Living in partnership with Ember Health.
