The Five Coping Skills That Every Patient Needs

This session will teach participants the 5 core pain coping skills that all pain patients need: understanding, believing, calming, balancing, and coping. By knowing these skills providers will have a better idea of how they can plan treatment and intervene with patients more effectively. Participants will also learn how they can teach these skills to patients in individual sessions or in a group setting. By learning these core skills and simple ways to teach them to patients, providers can add to their treatment armamentarium in helping patients deal with their pain. (Recorded at PAINWeek 2016)
