Description

Two copies of the presenter’s new book, Treating Chronic Pain: A Pill-Free Approach to Move People from Hurt to Hope, will be raffled off to attendees.

As a behavioral health professional, you’ve probably worked with many people who have chronic pain. In some cases, they are using opiates to cope with the pain, or have become addicted to opiates. And when we don‘t know how to help with pain, we sometimes don’t ask about its impact on their lives. These individuals often struggle with anxiety and depression and may become addicted to opioids. It is estimated that 100 million people in the U.S. are living with chronic pain and that approximately 1/3 of these individuals are seeking medical treatment for their pain. Across the nation, healthcare providers are taking another look at how to safely and effectively treat acute and chronic pain while also reducing the risks associated with opioids.

There are few behavioral health professionals and medical professionals skilled in helping people with chronic pain. More providers with expertise in behavioral interventions for pain management are needed to combat the opioid epidemic. Pain management has typically not been a part of behavioral health practice, but research and clinical practice are demonstrating that behavioral interventions are the most effective treatment for chronic pain. The CDC recently published guidelines that highlight the opioid epidemic and its tragic consequences, along with recommendations for treating chronic pain. Behavioral treatment is the most effective option and should be tried prior to prescribing opioids.

This interactive and cutting-edge training will provide you with innovative and evidence-based tools and techniques to expand your clinical practice, and more effectively support and treat people with chronic pain. You will gain the skills and confidence needed to apply practical and life-changing motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral interventions to help individuals more effectively manage chronic pain and enjoy active, healthy and meaningful lives. The presentation will include assessment tools, worksheets, and a 10-session guide for treatment.

Learning Objectives:
• Describe how the emotional aspect of client’s pain can be more problematic than the physical aspect and how it can increase pain;
• Specify the differences in risks of opioid medication use in men, women and the elderly and the related treatment implications for non-opioid medications and behavioral interventions;
• Assess the psychological, physical, social, and behavioral factors that contribute to chronic pain and articulate their treatment implications;
• Implement Motivational Interviewing techniques to move clients towards behavior change that reduces the symptoms of chronic pain;
• Summarize the CDC recommendations for the treatment of chronic pain and communicate how that impacts clinical treatment;
• Utilize cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness-based strategies to decrease symptoms of chronic pain in clients using a 10-session guide for treatment.
