Perhaps the single most failure producing aspect of chronic pain is its inherent isolation. Add the medical hopelessness faced by many patients, and a perfect storm is created for chronic pain patients to fall permanently out of the workforce and fail to thrive. Pain management coaching provides the bridge between medical care and the patient's innate will to survive. Pain management coaching pioneer Becky Curtis will share how the latest research on the brain and pain relate to relearning and pain management. Attendees will gain understanding of the role pain management coaching plays in reshaping the learned phenomenon of chronic pain, and how coached clients acquire knowledge and implement effective pain management strategies with the guidance of a coach.
