Webinar Description




Historically, health care practitioners have treated pain as a sensory experience occurring in the body.  Fortunately, over time, a more comprehensive vision of pain has emerged centering the pain in the brain, as a mind-body phenomenon. 

This workshop will provide an understanding of how intricately pain is linked to the psyche. I will demonstrate ways of evaluating and treating pain using our knowledge of psychology, psychotherapy and neuroscience.
