OPEN FOUNDATION TRAINING

The OPEN Foundation produces training programmes for psychedelic professionals, such as continued (medical) education trainings, practice-oriented workshops, and master classes. Check out this page if you're a healthcare professional and would like to learn more about psychedelics.

MASTER CLASS: THERAPEUTIC APPLICATIONS OF PSYCHEDELICS IN MENTAL HEALTHCARE

This master class is intended for BIG-registered clinical practitioners (psychiatrists, clinical and healthcare psychologists, psychotherapists). You will receive additional training from experts in the Netherlands in the therapeutic application of psychedelics in psychiatry and psychotherapy. Under the chairmanship of Prof. Eric Vermetten and Joost Breeksema, Dutch experts from across the field will embark with you on a two-day refresher course detailing developments in the application of psychedelics in the treatment of mental disorders. This course discusses, among other things: the current state of affairs in the application of psilocybin, ketamine, and MDMA, indication areas, thoughts about mechanisms of action, the role of mystical and spiritual experiences, risks, contraindications, and legal frameworks in the Netherlands and abroad. Our last master class was broadcast from the Endegeest Castle in the Netherlands, and we're working on bringing back this successful event due to popular demand.

PSYCHEDELICS IN PSYCHIATRY AND PSYCHOTHERAPY

There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that psychedelics can be used safely and effectively to treat mental disorders, including depression, PTSD, and substance use disorders. During this one-day symposium, leading psychiatrists, psychotherapists, neuroscientists, and psychopharmacologists in the field of psychedelic-assisted therapies will share the latest scientific developments and insights into the therapeutic use of psychedelics, and discuss the future of treatment and research with MDMA, psilocybin, LSD and other compounds.
