Like ketamine therapy, your pen is a powerful tool.
The CONNECTEDjournal guides you to prepare for, record, and successfully integrate your healing experience. Ketamine treatment is tremendous. It is also a fast and full hour or more of sensory, emotional, and mental missives. The full scope of details within that experience can be hard to remember, even immediately after the session. A written patient journal is a chance to vividly capture the experience, and hold on to any peace, calm, and relief that was accessed.
If you have done your research and are ready to consider this unique healing opportunity, then you know patients turning to ketamine therapy to treat severe depression, PTSD, chronic pain, and related physical and mental health issues can take active steps alongside treatment for improved outcomes. For example, professional mental health counseling is often required or suggested in coordination with treatments. Called “integration therapy,” this takes the ketamine session – what is felt, learned, or experienced – and gives it meaning for long-term change. As a written collection of intense and mysterious elements of a ketamine session, a completed journal is a launching pad for integration.
Many clinical ketamine treatments shape a standard six-session program across several weeks with potential booster sessions after that. Therefore, CONNECTED includes six full sets of journal pages with bonus pages at the end to match this series.
Your personal journal for ketamine therapy offers:
Three different types of working pages to support the complete process of this unique treatment: Preparation, Recall, and Connection
A space to explore the tremendous, unusual experience of ketamine; and capture the sensory, emotional, and mental missives within
Organized, broad prompts to bring clarity to details and connect the experience to daily life
A starting point for review and discussion with a counselor, medical team, or support group
A flexible, growing document for the critical phase of integration
CONNECTEDhas ample writing space and a functional layout that brings ease to the process.
This journal was designed to work in partnership with a medically supervised treatment plan, allowing a chance to thoughtfully consider how the ketamine experience can translate into the best possible health results.
The ketamine will fade away, but your words, captured here, will remain available to revisit and explore as you move forward.
