Law and Ethics: Integrating Ethics into Psychedelic & Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy
Friday | May 3, 2024
8:00 am - 10:00 am 
(2 CEs)

Workshop Description:

It would not be hyperbole to state that we are on the precipice of a potential paradigm shift in the treatment of some mental health conditions. While classic psychedelics such as MDMA and psilocybin remain listed as Schedule 1 substances by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, that may change in the coming year, which could usher in an era of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy. While we wait for updates from ongoing clinical trials, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy is currently being provided in a variety of settings. This workshop will guide attendees through the legal and ethical considerations when providing ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and what principles may apply to psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy in the future.


Learning Objectives:

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Analyze different ways in which risk may fluctuate across setting types when providing ketamine-assisted psychotherapy.
  • Identify key sections of the CAMFT Code of Ethics applicable to psychedelic- and ketamine-assisted psychotherapy.
  • Describe the current legal differences between providing psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy versus ketamine-assisted psychotherapy.
