Psychedelic Therapist Training Program
Mind Medicine Australia’s aims are to enable the development of regulatory-approved and research-backed psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy (PAP) for the treatment of mental ill-health in Australia. To this end, MMA will develop its own Psychedelic Therapist Training Program (PTTP) in collaboration with leading PAP practitioners in the USA and UK.
The MMA PTTP will give qualified clinicians the additional skills and awareness they need in order to safely and successfully facilitate PAP. Instruction will focus on a standardized approach to PAP that can be integrated with clinicians’ existing psychotherapeutic experience and training.
PAP is not yet legal in Australia. However, given the impressive early clinical evidence to date, and the near-term regulatory changes predicted in the US and EU subject to forthcoming data, this therapist training program will play a major part in responsibly preparing the Australia context for regulatory changes in the coming years. While not assured, in the likely event that PAP is registered as a new treatment in Australia, there will be an immediate demand for clinicians trained in the safe and effective provision of PAP at that time. Graduates of our training program will be well positioned to meet this demand.
Additional information you can provide on your background and readiness for this work will be beneficial.
We look forward to staying in touch on all developments.
