Behavioral Treatment of Chronic Pain: Evidence-Based Techniques to Move People from Hurt to Hope


We 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.

We are witnessing a devastating public health crisis that is ruining individual’s lives, tearing up families, and ripping through communities. We 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.

Watch 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 towards 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.
