Training/continuing education credits are offered to health providers (including clinical counsellors and psychotherapists, psychologists, nurses, and family physicians) for a CE administrative fee*.

Psychedelic Psychotherapy Forum is approved by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) to offer continuing education for psychologists. The Psychedelic Psychotherapy Forum maintains responsibility for the program.

In addition, similar to the last forum, the 2020 Forum is applying for pre-approved continuing education credits (for the Forum presentations and post-forum workshops) through the relevant Canadian organizations — CME credits by the College of Family Physicians Canada (CFCP), and CEC hours by the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). These details will be updated on the website as application approvals arrive from the relevant organizations.

Note that psychiatrists are also able to claim CME credits as a Personal Learning Project (PLP).

*FEE NOTICE: Healthcare professionals who want training credits through CCPA, CPA, and CFPC will be charged a nominal flat fee of CAD25 + GST.

Due to the labour intensive nature of processing CEs — including the detailed application processes, coordination with presenters, administering and tracking attendance over the digital platform, distributing certificates of attendance, and collating evaluation surveys/registrant feedback, PPF2020 is now levying a nominal CE administrative charge for those who want to attain training credits. Registrants who have paid for a digital Forum ticket or post-forum workshop(s) will be contacted again to register and pay their administrative fees for CE/CMEs.

We will be updating this page upon with specific CE/CME details closer to the Forum dates.
