TheraPsil's Training Program
"Our training program is designed to train healthcare providers in how to safely and effectively guide a client on a therapeutic psilocybin experience. While a scholarly and didactic foundation is essential, the focus for our training is on the therapeutic skills required to achieve that objective. After 30+ years as a practicing therapist, I have felt firsthand the limitations of my field to consistently relieve people of the often devastating symptoms of conditions like depression, addiction, and PTSD. Psychedelic therapy is showing promise to significantly increase our effectiveness for these clinical populations. But it is a new way of treating clients so we must learn these new ways - this is what our training hopes to do.”
- Dave Phillips, Clinical Counsellor, TheraPsil Training Beta-Program Lead Facilitator
TheraPsil’s fundamental mission is to provide access to psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy to Canadians in medical need. Our primary functions are patient-rights advocacy, assessment and referral.
To this end, we recognize the importance of developing a pool of suitably trained and trusted TheraPsil Clinical Associates to whom we can refer patients.
TheraPsil has created a training curriculum as the required context in which trainees may legally use psilocybin as part of their professional training, previously announced in December 2020.
UPDATE: On March 1st, 2021 TheraPsil launched the beta-version of their training program, which will be used to inform future iterations, rolled out across Canada. More information can be found here, in the press release.
PLEASE NOTE: This curriculum is being evaluated by our beta-training program team, and may be subject to change.
