Psychedelic Ketamine Journeys
Ketamine is a highly dissociative, psychedelic and/or visionary medicine. What if we embrace the psychedelic component instead of avoiding it? Is there any value in having safe psychedelic experience (in a contained medical environment)? Dr. Bennett will discuss these questions in this presentation. She will also talk about patient selection (many people are not an appropriate candidate for this treatment approach), dose, frequency, setting, and the importance of the therapeutic container for working in this dose range. She will end by sharing common themes, experiences, and imagery from psychedelic ketamine journeys in a clinical context.
