Pain Management in Practice

September 3, 2020 @ 8:00 am - September 4, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Pain management in practice

About the event

This 2 day workshop is designed to challenge and extend your skills to manage clients with pain to achieve significant functional outcomes, including a return to work. The workshop focuses on developing:

• a further understanding of why pain can persist

• skills to better identify the “hidden” barriers through a more comprehensive assessment process

• a framework of treatment options for clients with ongoing pain

• goals that your client is motivated to achieve

• novel graded exposure plans to address fear avoidant behaviours

• sleep strategies to improve disrupted sleep

• specific CBT and ACT techniques to address pain

• practical strategies to address a client who is ‘stuck’

• techniques to more effectively address challenging communication issues when dealing with resistance and how to manage difficult conversations


The workshop has a very strong practical focus to ensure you are able to implement the strategies into your working day. Small group work is undertaken to allow time to practice new skills and numbers are strictly limited to ensure the workshop is highly interactive.
