Freedom From Chronic Pain Suffering: Moving Out of the Problem and Into the Solution

5

Overview:

Chronic pain includes both physiological and psychological pain symptoms, and participants of this presentation will learn how to differentiate between the two types of symptoms to support patients who are experiencing chronic pain. The multidisciplinary Addiction-Free Pain Management® model offers clinicians a new skill set to address chronic pain issues with clients without the use of inappropriate opioids and offers a treatment modality for those who are already in the throes of an addictive disorder as a result of their chronic pain and past medical management strategies.

Participants will learn about the implementation of a research-supported, multidisciplinary, and integrated pain management approach that will increase positive treatment outcomes, and participants will also learn the components that are necessary to treat the synergistic symptoms of pain and coexisting disorders including Biological, Psychological, Social/Cultural, and Spiritual.  This course also explores the various ways patients with chronic pain and coexisting disorders get stuck and give up. Participants will also explore the importance of developing a treatment plan that instills balance.

When working with people suffering from chronic pain it is crucial to be aware of the cultural and family dynamics that could sabotage effective treatment. This workshop addresses these types of obstacles and covers recommended interventions needed for positive treatment outcomes.

Objectives:

  • Discuss two or more reasons why the biomedical approach alone may be ineffective for the low-outcome subset of chronic pain patients with coexisting disorders.
  • Discuss three or more of the six significant stuck points patients experience and ways to overcome them for successful chronic pain management treatment outcomes.
  • Identify and differentiate between the physiological and psychological/emotional pain symptoms and have appropriate management strategies for both types.
  • Explain their patients let go of suffering by developing a treatment plan that adequately addresses the psychological/emotional symptoms of their pain.
  • Teach patients to explore the correlation between increased stress and worsening levels of pain and how to develop appropriate relaxation response skills to reduce their levels of stress and pain.
  • Define at least five of the twelve denial patterns (psychological defense mechanisms) that can sabotage treatment outcomes.

Course materials are only available to enrolled students.
