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.
