Helping MFTs Understand and Treat Chronic Pain

Millions of adults suffer from daily chronic pain. This impacts not only the person with pain, but the entire family system. There is a very strong bi-directional relationship between chronic pain and mental health. The bio-psycho-social model of chronic pain makes it clear that the most effective pain treatment uses a behavioral approach. Family systems approaches can improve quality of life for all involved. This webinar will examine the current model of chronic pain and explain why opioids commonly makes pain worse and why behavioral therapy is the evidence-based treatment of choice. This will be followed by a summary of the behavioral therapy techniques that will reduce pain and improve quality of life in those who hurt.

How to Resolve Toxic Discourse

Speaker: Michael Gottlieb Today's increasingly partisan political climate and the division it sometimes engenders creates unique challenges for family members who find themselves on opposite sides of a particular issue. Mental health professionals must navigate between and among disputing family members, while managing their own views, thoughts, and feelings in the therapy room. While Washington DC might not seem an obvious source for guidance on this particular topic, those who live and work there must navigate these challenges daily-often hourly-as they engage with friends, colleagues, and family on all sides of a particular issue. What can be learned from that experience? And how can it be applied to therapeutic practice? No Handouts provided.
