Behavioral Treatment of Chronic Pain: Evidence-Based Tools to Move from Hurt to Hope.
With spikes in overdose deaths for individuals with opioid use disorders on the rise, physicians have decreased opioid prescriptions to patients with chronic pain due to the risk of accidental death and abuse. Physicians and patients are turning to alternative treatment options for opioid use disorders and chronic pain.
Many physicians are now prescribing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for chronic pain. CBT is an effective treatment for significantly reducing depression and anxiety in chronic pain patients. The CBT for Chronic Pain (CBT-CP) protocol has been clinically shown to improve overall quality of life by reducing the negative impact of pain on daily life, improving physical and emotional functioning, and increasing effective coping skills for pain management.
The Department of Veterans Affairs has been an integral part in disseminating and implementing CBT-CP protocol in the United States. Dr. Elizabeth Lima from The Charles George VA Medical Center will provide detailed instructions in a two day live workshop, followed by nine 1-hour webinars to provide intensive instruction on how to use CBT in your practice. Utilizing CBT can decrease suffering and increase the quality of life for individuals with mental health and chronic pain conditions.
