Dealing with chronic pain can be hard; accessing appropriate services can be even more difficult. This program for the ongoing self-management of pain will teach you what you CAN do to manage your own pain, independent of medications. This program is based on Cognitive Behavioral principles (CBT) and rooted in current best practice. This program contains information that you can start to use today or while you wait for your next referral. This program is suitable for anyone currently experiencing chronic pain, as well as anyone who is interested in learning more about chronic pain.
Brandon makes it clear from the start that you are the expert in your own pain and how it affects you. I immediately felt like he wasn’t trying to be a know-it-all and tell me what I should and shouldn’t be doing. I’ve read books and articles online before which have put me off as the author or presenter comes across in a very unsympathetic way. Brandon is the complete opposite. He has a very empathetic tone and his style keeps you listening.
The theory and psychology behind chronic pain and coping with it can be very complex, but not in this programme. There is no technical language; no complex science and theory to understand. Everything is in plain English and makes a lot of sense.
