What can Mindfulness bring to your Pain Practice


Imaging research demonstrates that about 80 percent of people who transit from acute to chronic pain produce neuroplasticity linking pain pathways to learning areas of the brain, showing biological evidence that chronic pain is largely learned. The aim of this workshop is to demonstrate the efficacy of a short self-guided mindfulness-based interoceptive exposure to extinguish learned aversive responses to pain sensations. It includes a video demonstration of the method and its immediate analgesic effect with a patient, and a description of preliminary research showing that chronic pain can largely be unlearned. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn and implement the skills during the workshop.
