Holistic Treatment of Pain in an Integrated Health Setting is organized by Community Mental Health Association of Michigan (CMHAM) and will be held on Aug 23, 2019 at Detroit Marriott Livonia, Livonia, Michigan, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 5.5 Continuing Education hours.
Who Should Attend:
This training is intended for administrative and Clinical Social Workers, health professionals who work with chronic pain, and registered nurses.
For centuries, Americans have relied on medication to manage pain. For many, this has resulted in physical dependence. For some, it may increase the risk of addiction. All of which, may decrease quality of life. Most professionals agree that there is a need for non-medicinal approaches to manage or find comfort in the midst of pain. However, there is not enough education or resources to provide adequate support.
This training addresses this gap in care and provides information about non-medicinal approaches to better manage the sensation of pain. Cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, acupuncture and yoga are some of the evidence-based techniques utilized in pain management.
By choosing to engage in these therapeutic interventions, pain sufferers are able to regain control of their experience with pain and increase the quality of life.
