WORKSHOP DETAILS

AM SESSION – Using psychological pain management tools in a physical therapy setting

If pain is an affective and sensory experience (IASP definition) and persistent pain appears to be centrally controlled (by the CNS) rather than peripherally, then what is going to help with a patient who is not responding to standard treatment?

The first half of this one-day course will address our understanding of what mediates pain and the nexus between psychological reactions and physical injuries/conditions. Fear avoidance, low self efficacy, and personality style/beliefs are known to predict outcomes with persistent pain. We will cover:

  • Quick overview of psychology and pain science: where are we up to with what causes persistent pain and disability?
  • Tips for treating a patient with persistent pain and a psychological condition that is either consequent to their physical problems or has developed subsequent to them that you can use in your clinical context
  • What to say and how to say it…. using psychological ideas to do better with goal setting, behavioural prescription and treatment adherence.
  • Referral to psychologists…not all are equally up to this kind of work…how to find the right one.

AFTERNOON SESSION – Motivational Interviewing and conversations about change

 

The second half of the program will focus on principles and skills from Motivational Interviewing that can help us to navigate difficult conversations about change, where reluctance and ambivalence are common.  We will cover:

 

  • Useful “roadmaps” for the change process and the change conversation – ways to identify “where are they at in relation to change?” and “where are we at in relation to this conversation?”
  • Creating shared focus when clinician and client goals are out of sync
  • Working with ambivalence and the “yes, but” conversation
  • Connecting with meaning and building momentum for change.

What you will get from attending this course:

  • techniques you can introduce to your patients next appointment who have persistent pain,
  • self-management tools you can refer your patients to who have tried everything (e.g. the brain changer http://brainchanger.io/) ,
  • ways of talking to patients who are stuck in their view of their pain and disability and where to find other health professionals who specialise in persistent/treatment resistant pain management and how would you know when you found them (what to ask to check them out!)
  • evidence based ways of communicating with patients that move beyond basic empathy and help you to get unstuck with patients who are not progressing in their treatment by having change-orientated conversations that help you and your patient.
