Webinar Description

This course addresses a persistent driver of opioid use and dependence: chronic pain. While this course will cover some chronic pain basics, its main focus will be on the theoretical and practical application of mindfulness practice as a chronic pain treatment intervention. The presenter will provide a neurobiological theoretical understanding of mindfulness interventions. The presentation will then shift into a practical understanding of techniques for clinical practice of mindfulness with patients, both for teaching the skill and for increasing patients' motivation to practice.

Shimmy Feintuch, LCSW CASAC-G has a practice in Midwood (Brooklyn), as well as in Washington Heights, a place he feels lucky enough to call home. For the past ten years, Shimmy has worked at The Jewish Board, Yeshiva of Central Queens, Interborough, The Safe Foundation, Chai Lifeline, and Ezra Medical Center. He taught courses in addiction and trauma at Touro College’s Mental Health Counseling program for two years, and he has written extensively on the topics of mental health and spirituality. While Shimmy considers himself a generalist practitioner of psychotherapy, he particularly enjoys working with anxiety and stress, and treating individuals and families affected by addiction. He has found mindfulness to be an exceptionally versatile clinical tool in treating these issues. Shimmy has been practicing mindfulness for seven years; he attends silent meditation retreats regularly. He enjoys public speaking, and has presented on the topic of mindfulness in Shanghai, China; Lawrence, Kansas; and now Hauppauge, New York.
