This workshop offers medical and psychotherapy professionals an approach for the management of chronic pain conditions. Specifically intended for work with patients at risk for medication dependence techniques are taught that involve self-assessment and active participation, both integral to the healing process. The use of creative imagination and hypnotic strategies offer opportunities for the subjective perceptual alterations, which can be used in the adaptation to chronic discomfort.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Identify parameters for assessing whether a patient is addicted or in increasing clinical pain.
  2. List three potential strategies for use of the imagination in management of chronic pain.
