For Professionals

It Takes a Very Special Person to Serve Those with a Terminal or Life-Threatening Illness

If you are one of those special people then EOLPC welcomes you into our family of caregivers. We understand the deep care, compassion and empathy you bring to your role and the difference you can make in someone’s life. With EOLPC’s mission to expand psychedelic care for those with a life-threatening or terminal diagnoses, we offer education classes for anyone who already serves in a doula, spiritual, mental health or palliative/hospice care setting or you are someone who wants to. Our Members Forum also provides the opportunity for peer networking, collaboration, and mentorship so that we can all support and learn from each other.

EOLPC

professional education courses

EOLPC offers a wide range of courses for anyone who wants to learn more about how psychedelic care can help ease anxiety and depression over the fear of dying while also helping to bring a new sense of meaning and purpose in the present moment and, for some, an embodied sense of the “next place.”

Courses are taught by experts in the field of psychedelic care with a deep knowledge of end-of-life issues. Each course is taught through the lens of caring for someone with a terminal diagnosis and includes such topics as psilocybin, ketamine, screening and assessment, preparation and integration, spirituality, mindfulness, bereavement, self and client care, and much more.

FEATURED COURSE

Due to the popularity of the first Core Course Program, EOLPC is offering the program again in 2024. This EOLPC Core Course Program is designed for anyone who wants to learn how psychedelic care can benefit someone with a life-threatening or terminal illness. Taught by respected and experienced leaders in their respective fields, the Program covers introductory sessions on psilocybin, ketamine, screening and assessment, preparation and integration, and ethical and legal considerations, all with a lens to the end-of-life issues your clients or patients face.
