Course Description:
They are in the midst of a nationwide push to treat chronic pain and address our out-of-control opioid prescribing. 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. The CDC recently published recommendations for the treatment of chronic pain, specifically highlighting behavioral treatment as an approach that should be tried before opioids are prescribed.

They are witnessing a devastating public health crisis that is ruining individual’s lives, tearing up families, and ripping through communities. They need to arm ourselves with the skills needed to offer our clients evidence-based behavioral interventions that will help them live healthy and productive lives.

Come to this interactive and cutting-edge training and learn creative tools and techniques to transform your practice. Learn powerful mindfulness interventions and motivational interviewing techniques to move your clients toward behavior change. Master the four pain-changing CBT tools. You will leave with the skills and confidence to provide practical and life-changing help to help people move out of chronic pain and into active, healthy, and meaningful lives.

Objectives:
• Describe how the emotional aspect of client’s pain can be more problematic than the physical aspect.
• Specify the differences in risks of opioid medications use in men, women and the elderly and the related treatment implications.
• Assess the psychological, physical, social, and behavioral factors that contribute to chronic pain and articulate their treatment implications.
• Implement motivational interviewing techniques to motivate clients toward behavioral change that reduce the symptoms of chronic pain.
• Summarize the CDC recommendations for the treatment of chronic pain and communicate how that impacts clinical treatment.
• Utilize mindfulness-based strategies to decrease symptoms of chronic pain in clients.
