An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until December 8, 2016
There are three (3) main concepts that are emphasized in this program, one being that every person experiences pain differently, therefore there is no one treatment that works for everyone. The second is that there are any number of things that chronic pain sufferers do to better manage their pain.
This program will use the knowledge of fellow peers to benefit the individual. Lastly, giving people tools to better self manage their symptoms without the use of medications.
Peer led teaching occurs over 6 sessions, lasting 150 minutes each. Led in lecturette-type sessions, using participant input whenever possible. Short homework assignments given, with minimal reading on occasion.
