Changing the Narrative Around Pain is a 14-hour course explicitly designed to expand your current practice through an evidence-based understanding of the biological and chemical changes that occur when one is in chronic pain.
Stories from those with lived experiences enlighten this class explaining how these biological truths affected their lives so we may better understand and apply our EB narratives to those who seek our help.
During this course, you will develop communication skills in regards to hearing patient stories and finding your voice as a pain science-informed clinician. Allowing you to help the individual in front of you find resilience, self-efficacy and reach their own goals.
Changing the Narrative Around Pain is designed to be part workshop-based and part coursework based.
It is currently being offered in two formats:
Eight Weeks in 90-Minute Sessions.
