MDMA Therapy Training Program Update: December 2020

Seasons greetings from the Training & Supervision department! We hope you are finding care and connection this winter, and we wish you a happy new year! 

Annie Mithoefer, B.S.N., and Michael Mithoefer, M.D. delivered a global online training November 5-6 and 9-12. The November online training included trainees in the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, United Kingdom, Portugal, South Africa, Somaliland, Canada, and the United States. 

Earlier this year the MDMA Therapy Training Program launched a training design initiative to support the growth and continued quality of the program. We completed a competency framework which outlines the essential knowledge, skills, and abilities therapy providers will need to develop in order to successfully offer MDMA-assisted therapy. The team is working with external contributors and various subject matter experts to develop additional curriculum for the MDMA Therapy Training Program. 

Our program staff are in the process of evaluating technology and various online platforms to support the learning ecosystem for the MDMA Therapy Training Program. We plan to deliver trainings entirely online in 2021. We are excited about the possibility of expanding access to training with the shift to online education. We plan to re-open enrollment for the MDMA Therapy Training Program in early 2021.
