Chronic pain is an international epidemic, and research shows that the most effective treatments are not medical, despite the heavy reliance of the medical profession on opioids, but behavioral.

We will explore how to integrate neurofeedback into a comprehensive treatment process that treats chronic pain as the biological-psychological-social phenomenon that it is. We will be looking at what the research tells us about neurofeedback practice, the biology of chronic pain, the variety of chronic pain conditions and the variety of ways of understanding pain and the patient in pain, systems thinking about pain, the therapeutic relationship, cognitive-behavior therapy, and assessing and tracking pain.

Accessible to both clinicians and home users, this webinar will offer much to beginners and to advanced practitioners alike.

This course is Intended for Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Social Workers, physicians, therapists, neurofeedback practitioners
