We are in the midst of a nationwide push to treat chronic pain and address our out of control opioid prescribing. It’s estimated that we have 100 million people in the US living with chronic pain. We can assume that at least 1/3 of the people we treat are dealing with this condition, yet most of us are ill-prepared to address this with skill and expertise. We are witnessing a devastating public health crisis that is ruining individual lives, tearing up families, and ripping through communities. It’s high time we arm ourselves with the skills needed to offer people evidence-based behavioral interventions for treating chronic pain that will help them live healthy and productive lives.
This interactive and cutting-edge training will provide techniques to transform practice to provide patients with alternative pain management tools.
Objective: Participants will be able to:
- identify cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness skills to provide practical and life-changing guidance to
- develop tools to help clients move out of chronic pain and into active, healthy, and meaningful lives
