DescriptionThe evidence is clear about how to safely and effectively treat pain while minimizing the risks of opioid use. We now know that behavioral approaches are the treatment of choice for chronic pain. About one-third of our population lives with chronic pain, and most of them are not receiving adequate pain care.
Behavioral health providers, medical professionals, and rehab clinicians can all be equipped with the skills needed to help people improve their quality of life despite having pain. Cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness approaches have the strongest research support for pain treatment.
This interactive and cutting-edge training will provide participants with innovative and evidence-based tools to expand their effectiveness in treating people with pain. Participants will gain skills and confidence to provide life-changing interventions to help people become more active, enhance social connections, find pleasure and meaning, and live fuller, richer lives.
