Psychological interventions for people with persistent pain is based on the understanding of psychological factors that contribute to the experience, impact and maintenance of pain. This training will look at simple techniques that help break the cycles of persistent pain, and support the client to live with pain and regain some of the territory they may have lost.
What the workshop covers? The myths about persistent pain; assessment, formulation and validation of pain; metaphors, stories and props to develop a better understanding of cognitions; behavioural activation, values based activities and pacing and experiential exercises.
What this course will do for you? The training covers a wide range of topics from introductory through to advance. The combination of lecture, case studies (video/ audio analysis) and role plays significantly develops skills and knowledge and techniques and provides an effective and cost efficient investment in your professional development.
