Description

UB School of Social Work Office of Continuing Education gives many thanks for the help from our planning committee for this interdisciplinary event: Center for Clarity Training and Consultation, LLC, and the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. 

Description: 

Neuroscientists now know that all pain is constructed by the brain’s alarm mechanism, which can be activated by either physical injury or perceived emotional threat. Whether it is one traumatic event or years of stress, individuals often experience a number of physical symptoms. Pain Reprocessing Therapy (RPT) is an innovative therapy shown to be effective in resolving psycho-physiologic-induced pain through psychoeducation, working to reduce perceived danger, and increasing adaptive behaviors. This workshop will provide tools to help clinicians accurately identify common chronic non-structural pain conditions, such as back and neck pain, headaches, fibromyalgia and abdominal-pelvic pain syndromes triggered by emotional and traumatic life experiences. Discussion will also include when to refer clients for additional evaluations and treatment. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify how the brain’s predictive coding mechanisms create and reinforce physical pain
  2. Recognize if your client has psycho-physiologic-induced pain
  3. Explain these concepts to clients using validating and cutting-edge neurological terminology
  4. Practice pain reprocessing therapy (PRT)

Research:  This workshop is based on the innovative treatment aproach of Pain Reprocessing Therapy being evaluated by Dr. Howard Schubiner. Dr. Schubiner and his Colleague Mark Lumley, PhD amongst others have published a number of papers on the subject. Their papers include the following: Emotional awareness and expression therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and education for fibromyalgia: a cluster-randomized controlled trial; Psychological Therapy for Centralized Pain: An Integrative Assessment and Treatment Model; and Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy for Chronic Pain: Rationale, Principles and Techniques, Evidence, and Critical Review.

Target Audience: social workers, mental health practitioners, creative arts therapists, marriage and facility therapists, psychologists, addiction professionals, case managers, medical, nursing, and dental professionals, rehabilitation professionals, and other interested individuals.

Content Level:  beginning and intermediate
