Event description

Description

Pain represents a national challenge. Effective management of pain requires solid knowledge of the physiological and the psychological interactions of pain and how these can be managed to improve the lives of individuals living with pain. This workshop aims to provide mental health workers with sound knowledge for the effective psychological management of their client’s pain.

Psychological treatments for persistent pain have been demonstrated to be effective alternatives or adjuncts to more traditional methods for promoting optimal pain management. Cognitive behavioural, acceptance and mindfulness training are potentially cost-saving methods of delivering evidence-based treatment to a wide range of chronic pain patients across clinical disciplines. This workshop provides a coherent unification of a number of empirically supported techniques from chronic pain literature.
The workshop is suitable for mental health workers of all levels and experience and provides an effective complement to physiological treatment of pain. There are no significant prerequisites necessary for successful completion of this workshop.

Learning Objectives

- Communication strategies to inform patients on how to manage their own pain

- Use assessment tools in your evaluation.

Lunch is catered for this workshop.
