This conference has been CANCELLED. 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 21, 2020 at Holiday Inn Marquette, Marquette, Michigan, United States of America. Who Should Attend: This training is intended for administrative and clinical Social Workers, health professionals who work with chronic pain, and registered nurses. Accreditation: This course qualifies for a maximum of 5.5 Continuing Education hours Description: 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, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, 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 quality of life. Conference Objective: • Accurately define acute vs. chronic pain. • Increase understanding of the biopsychosocial model for chronic pain management. • List at least three areas of a person's environment that influence pain management. • Describe at least three self-management techniques to better cope with chronic pain. • Summarize the difference between utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for pain management. • Recognize the complexity of working with individuals with chronic pain and learn how to manage your own well-being throughout the process.
