The focus for Module 1 is to provide you with an introduction to the course, as well as some of the foundational principles in providing psychedelic-assisted therapy, including the Numinus Care Model.
Central to building a supportive therapeutic relationship is how the health professional consciously situates themselves towards the client and the relationship, and the qualities of their presence.
In this module, we will begin learning about core competencies for health professionals who deliver psychedelic-assisted therapy. We will focus on therapeutic supportive touch and embodiment-oriented competencies, including embodied inquiry.
Building on what we learned in Module 3, we will begin by focusing on trauma, especially complex trauma, and important competencies and knowledge required for a trauma lens to psychedelic-assisted therapy.
In this module, we will be learning about set and setting, preparing clients for challenges during the Medicine Session, music, and other considerations for your Preparation Sessions with clients.
This module will focus on navigating Medicine Sessions including working with a co-facilitator and responding to emergencies while under the effects of the medicine.
In this module, we will look at some key considerations for facilitating Integration Sessions as well as a framework that we recommend employing to empower clients to get the most out of their psychedelic-assisted therapy.
This module will focus on how health professionals can take care of themselves in order to provide the highest level of care for clients. As we will learn, there is a direct link between health professional self-care and the quality of care delivered to clients.
Psychedelic-assisted therapy aims to identify and resolve root causes of mental health conditions, working by creating a mind-opening effect through the psychedelics that allows access to deeper levels of insight and healing. Although more research is required, existing evidence suggests that combining a psychedelic experience with psychotherapy can lead to lasting changes and benefits.
