Ketamine is a unique medicine with anesthetic, dissociative, and psychedelic properties. In recent years, ketamine has been shown to have rapid-acting antidepressant and anti-obsessional properties, yet there is a lot of confusion and disagreement about how to use this tool in a legal context.
Dr Bennett will present three different paradigms for ketamine treatment in clinical practice: biochemical/medical, relational/psychotherapeutic model, and shamanic/psychedelic. She will highlight the advantages and drawbacks for each approach, before discussing the clinical indications for legal ketamine treatment (including the established and investigational uses) according to the most current research literature. Finally, Dr Bennett will talk about the legal status of ketamine in the Western world today.
After the talk, our audience will have the chance to ask Dr Bennett questions in the live Q&A. As she is one of the world’s leading experts on the topic of ketamine treatment, this really is one not to miss!
