Another client enters your office angry about the chronic pain they struggle with daily. They start sharing their story and the mask of frustration peels away to reveal the hopelessness and despair from living in a constant state of misery. Most clinicians are not trained in chronic pain, yet this scenario is becoming all too familiar, as at least 1/3 of our clients suffer from chronic pain. More and more clients are moving away from medication, seeking out holistic solutions, yet we’re not quite sure of the best way to help them.

Imagine helping your clients learn that while pain might be unavoidable, misery is optional. Strengthen the therapeutic relationship by validating the reality of clients’ pain while introducing ways to help them immediately experience a lessening of their distress. Explore acupressure and meditation to help clients discover how mind and body are connected.

In this two-day workshop, neuropsychologist, Dr. Robert Rosenbaum, will teach you the facts about pains’ biology and effective treatment strategies, so you can confidently educate and treat your clients. With experiential exercises such as guided imagery, acupressure, meditation, and gentle movement, combined with cognitive-behavioral methods, you’ll leave with the right skills and tools at your fingertips to treat chronic pain.

• Explore strategies on how to prevent pain before it begins for purposes of client psychoeducation.
• Explain the importance of early intervention in the pain cycle and its clinical implications.
• Identify the most common pain complaints as related to clinical treatment.
• Describe how age, gender, ethnicity, and culture influence the experience of pain as it relates to case conceptualization.
• Distinguish how different types of pain require different treatment approaches.
• Correlate how the brain, the mind, and the heart all affect pain for purposes of client psychoeducation.
• Examine and counter maladaptive myths about pain to improve client level of functioning.
• Assess pain through specialized questionnaires and interview methods to inform the clinician’s choice of treatment interventions.
• Demonstrate four meditation methods useful for dealing with pain in session.
• Discover six acupressure points helpful for pain prevention and management in clients.
• Implement clinical methods to help clients concretize their pain and use guided imagery to alleviate pain.
• Identify existential, spiritual, and self-identity issues which interact with biological and psychological components of pain as it relates to treatment outcomes.
