About The Event
Psychedelic Professionals Meetup Groups are happening now in the Pikes Peak Region! Let's keep Colorado on the leading edge of psychedelic medicine work by coming together in community to learn, share, and grow. Each Psychedelic Professionals Meetup Group starts with an informative topic relevant to research, practice, policy, or activism around psychedelic medicines, followed by open discussion and an opportunity to connect with like-minded others.
In the Springs this month, we're welcoming Scott DeWalt MSW, LCSW to share about his own ketamine-assisted therapy practice, access to psychedelic treatments, and issues around funding/insurance. Scott is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and has a private practice in Colorado Springs, CO. He spent 10 years as an IT professional before realizing that he wanted to be of service to others in a more intentional way. Switching trajectories, he returned to school to become a social worker and spent 7 years helping families stay together in child welfare before becoming a full-time therapist. He specializes in trauma/PTSD and provides EMDR and KAP (Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy). He spends his free time with family, practicing mindfulness, and advocating for social justice.
Professionals and interested community members alike are welcome to attend the meetup. The meetup is free, but donations are very appreciated and all go toward supporting the non-profit mission of The Nowak Society. Please be sure to follow all community guidelines at meetup events, including no soliciting for illegal substances or services. Let's keep all of us safe, please!
If you have ideas for topics or presentations for these meetup groups or would like to be more involved, please contact us.
