Treatment of Dissociation and Ketamine-based Therapy:  

A Case(s) Study


New Dates Coming Soon

About This Webinar

Patients with histories of trauma and dissociative symptoms often present with significant and layered complexity. The trajectory of treatment is long and complex, and pre-established goals usually occur in short intervals. Although research has contributed to significant advances in treatment outcomes for patients with dissociative symptoms, the duration and severity of distress remain a feature of the clinical picture. Interventions that combine traditional psychotherapy with innovative approaches have the potential to reduce the overall duration and cost of patient treatment. Ketamine and psilocybin could have the potential to completely change the trajectory of treatment, given the research that is emerging for patients with treatment-resistant depression. Although these interventions may be very promising, equally concerning is the risk potential arising from their application to people with complex trauma and structural dissociation. Heather is a fictional client who represents a several people who have dissociative disorders and have undergone ketamine treatment as an intervention.

Key Learning Objectives:

  1. Treatment Outcomes with Ketamine: Discuss the potential treatment outcomes of using ketamine in patients with dissociative symptoms, exploring its efficacy and limitations.

  2. Risk Considerations: Identify potential risks associated with using ketamine treatment in patients with dissociative symptoms, considering safety and ethical implications.

  3. Research Implications: Discuss the importance of further research on the use of ketamine as an intervention for patients with dissociative symptoms, addressing gaps in current knowledge and understanding.

  4. Cultural Perspectives: Explore cultural attitudes towards dissociation and their impact on research and interventions, highlighting the need for cultural sensitivity and inclusivity in mental health practices.

  5. Adjunctive Therapy: Discuss the possibilities of using ketamine as an adjunct to therapy in patients with dissociative disorders, considering its role in enhancing therapeutic outcomes and promoting healing.
