Informed Approaches to Compassionate Pain Management

Course Description:

Pain affects more than 100 million U.S. residents, and most social workers will work with patients and families whose lives have been touched by pain. However, chronic pain can be devastating and a challenge to treat, leading to years of physical and emotional suffering. Effective pain management has been complicated by myths and misconceptions held about people affected by chronic pain. We must seize every opportunity to challenge patient, provider, and systemic barriers to effective pain management. In using affirmative models of practice, social workers can assist those with chronic pain reduce suffering and increase quality of life in a variety of ways, from providing one-on-one/family/group psychotherapy and education to fighting for health care equity and social justice. Special attention will be placed on pain management as a global human right. The roles of the social worker in pain management will be considered, and resources will be shared.

Pain Symptoms as Messengers: Listening to the Body as a Pathway to Healing

Course Description:

This workshop will reveal how physical pain symptoms are bodily messengers that can help individuals understand and manage pain symptoms. These pain symptoms can be caused by persistent unhealthy beliefs and difficult emotions as well as physical injury. The unpleasant nature of pain symptoms generally lead to difficult emotions, which can then generate more pain. When this cycle of pain symptoms goes unnoticed or unaddressed, the cumulative effect can lead to more serious physical and mental health problems. In this workshop, you will learn to differentiate difficult emotions from physical pain sensations, as you practice a body-based strategy to manage pain symptoms for optimal health. The workshop will offer brief lecture, discussion, and experiential exercises. The presenter aims to have participants leave with practical strategies and a renewed charge for reading and managing pain symptoms while moving forward with their work and life goals when working with clients.
