Course Detail: CPSM - Evidence-Based Chronic Pain Self-Management Program
This FREE, evidence-based 6-session workshop is open to all community members who experience chronic pain, to include individuals with conditions, injuries, or health events that cause chronic pain - - e.g., diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia, cancer, heart conditions, back strain, falls, heavy lifting, motor vehicle accidents, traumatic injuries, surgery, depression, kidney disease, and other such conditions, injuries, or health events. Participants learn how to apply self-management skills to reduce their level and intensity of pain and to manage associated problems such as tiredness, anxiety, sadness, difficulty in meeting obligations independently, and disruptions in daily routines related to self-care, household and family responsibilities, work, education, church, and social commitments. This workshop was developed and tested by Stanford University and studies show that participants have reduced pain, worry about their pain, reduced fatigue, and reduced difficulty in completing daily activities. Workshop participants will learn new self-management skills, practice these new skills, and strengthen their ability to use and personalize their self-management skills through the exchange of supportive feedback with fellow participants. Learn how to feel and live better through the Chronic Pain Self-Management Program!
