Webinar Description

Chronic pain affects one in five adults in the US.  For many people, pain begins with an event such as an injury from which the expected full recovery fails to occur.  Such people often struggle for years with pain for which an ongoing cause is not identified, and which is ineffectively treated with increasing amounts of pain medication with attendant adverse effects.  In The Way Out, Alex Gordon summarizes research into the basis of such pain how pain reprocessing can substantially reduce or eliminate it.  In this webinar, Vanessa Blackstone, Executive Director of the Pain Psychology Center founded by Dr. Gordon and author of the soon to be released The Pain Reprocessing Therapy Workbook, will discuss this treatment approach, and the resulting network of practitioners trained in it. 

Specific Topics:

What is the cause of chronic pain?

What is pain reprocessing and how can it help?

Can individuals learn to reprocess without the support of a trained practitioner?

What resources are available to support this approach?
