Power Over Pain Program Seeks Participants
April 5, 2018
Pain is a very complex condition that changes neurological structures and is influenced by biological, behavioral, environmental and societal factors. Developed at the Stephen and Sandra Sheller 11th Street Family Health Services, Power over Pain is an interdisciplinary approach to educate and empower people with pain. Power over Pain addresses health and wellness from physical, mental and social platforms to provide group members with the best evidence-based tools and education to manage their pain and lead fuller lives.
A group is now forming and looking for participants to start this eight-week pyschoeducational program. Through this process participants will learn all about pain and how to manage it in a supportive environment. Each group will start with an introduction by an expert followed by a guided discussion of how to apply the information to daily life and how to address barriers to incorporating new information and new ideas.
Power Over Pain is on Mondays starting April 16, 2018. Each session runs from 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. and the curriculum covers a variety of topics.
||Intro and Pain Neuroscience
||Movement and Pacing
||Nutrition and Fatigue
||Imagery, Mindfulness, Relaxation

The fee is only $80 for all eight sessions. Participants will receive weekly instruction and handouts to facilitate understanding and develop tools to manage pain and daily activities. The College of Nursing and Health Profession's faculty experts who facilitate learning include:
