Learning Objectives:

  • Examine the critical role of psychology in the experience and treatment of chronic pain.
  • Identify and address barriers to pain psychology in one’s own practice (e.g., patient receptivity; lack of knowledge of the treatment modality; lack of resources.)
  • Increase confidence to effectively engage patients in psychosocial pain care (through interactive role-playing, acquisition of skills.)
  • Acquire tangible, immediately implementable resources to facilitate patient receptivity to psychosocial treatment approaches.
