Course Description

Ethics goes beyond laws and guidelines. Ethical development requires acknowledgement of relationship. Relationship is at the heart of healing, and it is ethics that is at the heart of any healing relationship. An ethical relationship is one a client can trust.

In psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy clients are surrendering to an as yet unknown transformation. It is crucial that patients are able to trust the person who sits with them during their exploration. They need to know the person they will rely on is willing to do their very best to attune to the extra-ordinary experience with them and to provide reassurance as needed in that world, yet, at the same time, maintain a safe physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual container for the explorer.

This course provides a self-reflective and self-compassionate approach to Right Relationship; an internal approach which puts our focus on motivations, those deep, not always conscious urges that precede our behaviors with clients. The self-inquiry of Right Relationship complements and amplifies the external, behavioral approach of traditional ethics education (the laws, codes, and standards that guide us behaviorally.)



Who is this course for?

This course is for professionals who are interested in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy or in assisting clients with the integration of profound experiences. This ethical approach is helpful to anyone working in therapy, and this particular course is focused on self-management and trigger management for those working with patients or clients in the field of psychedelics: psychologists, therapists, mentors, physicians, medical professionals, bodyworkers, teachers, and guides.

    1. Chart of Professional Vulnerabilities to Ethical Misconduct to identify one’s own motivations.
    2. Why self-compassion is a prerequisite for self-reflection.

  2. Apply mindfulness to ethical decision making to dilemmas that may occur during psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy.

Very engaging and informative training. Kylea’s expertise in the worlds of Holotropic Breathwork and psychedelics is evident in how the similarities and differences of these modalities are woven into this training. These are two worlds in which I walk and I am thankful for the an expanded model of ethics that includes the traditional approach without condemning it. This training has made me eager to hear more about the Ethics of Caring.
