In recent years, the use of ketamine as a treatment for refractory depression has become increasingly common. As such, it is essential for therapists to have a working knowledge of this medicine and how to skillfully integrate it with talk therapy. Join us for this informative Lunch and Learn which will cover the history and neurobiology of ketamine, current data on its effectiveness for depression, and guidelines for effective integration with psychotherapy.
