Add a valuable dimension to your practice and prepare yourself to help clients in chronic pain with behavioral solutions!
The landscape of chronic pain treatment is changing rapidly as we wean ourselves off the traditional bio-medical approach that emphasizes harmful opioid-based pain management approaches.
And the demand for mental health professions who can work with chronic pain management is likely to explode as the CDC’s new recommendations favoring behavioral treatments will have more people than ever before seeking drug-free solutions to their pain

Grinstead, Dr. AD, LMFT, ACRPS, for this one-day program and get the proper understanding, skills and treatment techniques you need to address the neurobiological, social and emotional aspects of chronic pain when potentially addictive medications are not an option.
