Effective Pain Management – Live Online
Time & Location
About The Event
Training from Human Givens College
This workshop – with leading pain and musculoskeletal medicine consultant Dr Grahame Brown – gives you important new information about how we experience pain – derived from the latest neuroscience – and a powerful range of psychological techniques for managing pain naturally, preventing it from escalating and speeding up healing.
You will discover how people can be helped out of the vicious cycle of chronic pain and how, by working holistically through the bio-psycho-social model, suffering can be dramatically reduced.
You don’t need to have any prior medical knowledge to learn from and enjoy the day – you will leave with a much clearer understanding of what is going on in the mind/body system, what you can do to reduce suffering when pain persists and ways to prevent chronic ongoing pain from developing.
You will have the opportunity to learn:
- An increased understanding of how we perceive pain (from the latest neuroscientific research) and what is happening in the mind/body system
- A road map for helping people out of the vicious cycle of chronic pain, or to stop it developing in the first place
- The confidence and skills to help patients suffering from persistent pain of whatever cause – no need to feel ‘heart-sink’ with some patients anymore
- An understanding of what is going on when pain persists – and what you can do about it
- How to reduce the risk of chronic pain developing – prevention is better than cure – and identify the factors that make it likely
- A range of psychological chronic pain management techniques to use with your patients or yourself
- The importance of the bio-psycho-social model in reducing pain and accelerating healing
- How to produce significant pain relief by changing the way people think about their pain – in minutes
- An understanding of the value of pain displacement and how to use the brain’s ‘reality simulator’
- What the latest neuroscience tell us about the experience of pain
- How to use guided imagery, relaxation and distraction to promote chronic pain relief
- How to deal with constant pain and promote healing
- How healthcare professionals can make their consultations more therapeutic
- How to avoid labelling patients’ pain as ‘purely psychological’
- The many myths about pain – and why some well-intentioned pain management techniques don’t work and more…
