THE PROGRAM is 8 group-sessions, on Tuesday afternoons at 2pm, starting Dec. 11, with a break over Christmas.
We will be working our way through the 15 steps of altering 'Chronic-Pain-Experience', and also discussing 'the 10 Commandments of Pain Management'.
We will be following the guide of the book 'Heal the Pain' by Gary Brandstadt, which is a recommended text at the Pain Management Clinic of Royal Jubilee Hospital.
There will be an introductory session on Tues. Dec.11, and again on Tues. Dec. 18, at 2-4p.m., in the church foyer. At the initial session we will be talking about how the brain behaves (the Neuro-biology of Pain Experience). We will start with some basic exercises that will be useful to practise over the Christmas season.
There is a fee of $65, which can be pro-rated or waived.
