With psychedelic therapy moving increasingly from the realm of research into clinical practice, there seem to be more options than ever for education, training, and certification. If you’re a serious healthcare practitioner, here’s why Fluence is your best choice:

  • Clinician-founded, clinician-led: Founded by and for clinicians, Fluence is a continuing education organization first and foremost. Best-in-class education and training is our sole focus.
  • Small cohorts, mentoring, and personalized feedback: Our small group cohorts and mentoring program ensure that you’ll have ample opportunity to not only get certified, but get an education tailored to your specific needs.
  • Approved to meet your continuing education needs: Fluence is one of the only organizations in the psychedelic therapy training space that is widely credentialed to issue continuing education credits for a variety of professionals.
  • Innovative technology solutions alongside rich in-person experiences: We use the latest education technology to enhance and complement our already rich learning experience—not to replace it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Psychedelic Integration, or Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration—also known as PHRI—is a client-centered approach to working with people in a clinical setting who have had or are considering having a psychedelic experience in any context—including therapeutic, spiritual, peer-led, or alone. For a more detailed response on this modality, including Fluence’s role in helping define it, please see this page.

No, Fluence does not provide clinical services. Fluence is an education program that aims to increase the availability of trained providers that can provide competent and ethical services in your local community. We can’t provide direct referrals to people who are seeking MDMA or psilocybin-assisted therapy services as this type of therapy is currently only available through clinical trials at this time. However, we can refer you to our certificate program graduates, who are trained to do ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP), Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration, or facilitate Psilocybin sessions in Oregon. Please reach out to for more information. 

Depending on the compound there may be a legal avenue to do so either by participating in a research trial, receiving treatment (as a patient with an approved condition) with a currently available psychedelic (e.g. ketamine), becoming a client of a licensed Psilocybin Facilitator in Oregon, or traveling abroad. Fluence will provide referrals to licensed providers where available.

We do not provide academic credit.

We work with a variety of community partners to bring our trainings to their organizations. Our programs can be open to the public or private for the members of your organization, and tailored to suit your community’s needs. If you would like to collaborate on holding a training locally, please email us and we’ll start the conversation.
