Pain - the role of acceptance seminar
Pain - the role of acceptance seminar

About the course

Have you ever questioned what ‘pain’ actually is and how it affects your wellbeing? In this session you will look at how pain responses are produced by the brain, how when you have an injury the autonomic  motor and immune systems respond, and why pain can continue after tissues have had plenty of time to heal. You will learn everyone is different!

Learning objectives:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of persistent pain.
  • Learn how to manage persistent pain.

This seminar takes place over 45 minutes in one session.
