The Workshop

There has been a long standing history in the UK of viewing physical and mental health conditions as two separate and distinct areas. In March 2016, The King Fund published ‘bringing together physical and mental health-a new frontier for integrated care, highlighting the need to use an integrated model of care using a more ‘whole person’ perspective. This training looks at supporting psychological therapists to develop the necessary skills to do so for clients who experience persistent pain

What the workshop covers?  Why use an integrated approach? How pain is processed in the brain? No brain no pain. How much pain you feel and how much unpleasant that pain feels can be separate things! Role of opiates, opioids and cortisol. Using an Integrated Assessment/Practising this approach. Collaborative planning.

What this course will do for you? The training covers a wide range 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.

This training will provide a CPD Certificate (6.5 hours) signed by the course trainer and Health City.

This training may also be used for personal development and growth.
