Course Description:

We are in the midst of a nationwide push to treat chronic pain and address our out of control opioid prescribing. At least 1/3 of the people we treat are dealing with this condition, yet most of us are ill-prepared to address this with skill and expertise. The CDC recently published recommendations for the treatment of chronic pain, specifically highlighting behavioral treatment as an approach that should be tried before opioids are prescribed.

We are witnessing a devastating public health crisis that is ruining individual’s lives, tearing up families, and ripping through communities. We need to arm ourselves with the skills needed to offer our clients evidence-based behavioral interventions that will help them live healthy and productive lives.

Come to this interactive and cutting-edge training and learn creative tools and techniques to transform your practice. Learn powerful mindfulness interventions and motivational interviewing techniques to move your clients towards behavior change. Master the four pain-changing CBT tools. You will leave with the skills and confidence to provide practical and life-changing help to help people move out of chronic pain and into active, healthy, and meaningful lives.

Objectives:
  1. Describe how the emotional aspect of client’s pain can be more problematic than the physical aspect.
  2. Specify the differences in risks of opioid medications use in men, women and the elderly and the related treatment implications.
  3. Assess the psychological, physical, social, and behavioral factors that contribute to chronic pain and articulate their treatment implications.
  4. Implement motivational interviewing techniques to motivate clients towards behavior change that reduce the symptoms of chronic pain.
  5. Summarize the CDC recommendations for the treatment of chronic pain and communicate how that impacts clinical treatment.
  6. Utilize mindfulness based strategies to decrease symptoms of chronic pain in clients.

JAMES KEYES, PH.D.

James Keyes, PhD, has specialized in the area of chronic pain and worker’s compensation treatment over the past 20 years, working both in CARF accredited multidisciplinary comprehensive treatment programs and in integrated primary care/medical centers. He has presented at national conferences (Ericksonian Congress and Brief Therapy conferences); as well as in the training programs for resident physicians and with mental health providers. He is on faculty with the University of Washington as a clinical instructor, supervising clinical work. He completed a specialized track in his doctoral program at Loyola University of Chicago and an internship at Denver Health & Hospitals for clinical child and adolescent psychology, in addition to training on clinical psychological treatments, later getting Board Certification in this area. However, in the changes of life (moving cities) an opportunity became available to work in a comprehensive pain program with provides who had 40 years’ experience in the treatment & management of chronic pain, Dr. Keyes added this treatment area to his base of skills, by joining this hospital-based program.

Dr. Keyes primarily describes his theoretical orientation as a cognitive behavioral therapist, because the approach he goes to first are those with the strongest research backing. However, in the course of training, he was exposed to the work of Milton Erickson, the psychiatrist who integrated strategic family therapies; hypnosis; and uncommon therapies (Haley) approaches to help patients individually reach their desired goals. Working with this background, in a patient centered approach, Dr. Keyes has worked over the years in multidisciplinary settings to assist patients who present.
