Re-wiring the Chronic Pain Brain: Coaching as a Means to Patient Transformation

Participants will learn how the patient’s focus on being cured contributes to an increase in the pain experience. Through an understanding of how negative thought patterns create a brain-body loop that accentuates pain, practitioners will learn techniques to guide patients to “rewire” their brains for a transformed experience with pain. Participants will learn the power gratitude has in building a pain-resistant (“teflon”) brain, and the benefits of movement and relaxation for rewiring the chronic pain brain. Coaching techniques will enable practitioners to share these elements with chronic pain patients.
