Over the last two decades, the opioid epidemic has shaken the public’s view on the use of pharmaceutical medication, as well as the companies manufacturing these drugs for the ongoing use of chronic pain management. New alternatives are being sought to address pain effectively and safely.
In this 2-hour continuing education webinar for mental health professionals, Dr. Liebert will review emerging research that supports the use of behavioral health strategies for effectively managing chronic pain. He will also cover the factors that influence people's experience of pain, explain the differences between acute and chronic pain, and discuss comorbidity risks.
This introductory webinar is designed to help clinicians:
Statement of program material’s accuracy, utility, and risks: All program suggestions and recommendations are consistent with the procedures and practices of other experts who treat chronic pain with behavioral health strategies, as well as literature published on the topic. This program discusses strategies for applying the concepts taught in a clinically responsible manner, although the presenter may not know how to apply all principles discussed to every situation or person. A body of research surveyed in the program suggests that the methods are effective and safe. As always, however, misapplication of the concepts with various populations could lead to harmful outcomes.
Declaration of any conflict of interest: None indicated.
