Helping clients to eliminate pain

Join the renowned Dr. Howard Schubiner for a weekend focused on taking care of your clients both mentally and physically. With over 15 years of experience, 100 peer-reviewed journal publications and three popular books that deal with the cognitive causes of pain, Dr. Schubiner has devoted his career to helping people live pain-free lives.

How can you confront physical pain when it is rooted in psychological trauma?

 

Many patients experience physical pain after going through therapy — and even if the pain does not have a physiological cause, healing is possible. When professional assessments indicate that a person’s pain is psychological in nature we can help them understand the problem and face it head on.

 

Join the renowned Dr. Howard Schubiner for a weekend course which will enhance your ability to care for your clients, both mentally and physically. With over 15 years of experience, 100 peer-reviewed journal publications and three popular books that deal with the cognitive causes of pain, Dr. Schubiner has devoted his career to helping people live pain-free lives.

 

Surrounded by the serene mountain landscapes at The Art of Living Retreat Center, you’ll learn pain management methods through lectures, demonstration and hands-on experience.

 

Expect to learn some of the most important techniques for conquering psyche-induced pain, covering:

 

  • Predictive coding mechanisms in the brain that can create and reinforce physical pain.
  • Determination of whether clients are experiencing psycho-physiologic-induced pain.
  • Explaining to clients the mechanisms of their pain in language they can understand.
  • Implementation of cognitive-behavioral techniques that target psychophysiological pain in clients.
  • Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy – the novel treatment approach that is proven to be more effective in treating fibromyalgia pain than standard CBT.

 

You’ll return home ready with a complete package of knowledge and skills to help your clients overcome pain. Many professionals have also been able to obtain Continuing Education credits for participation.

 

Program suitable for doctors, massage therapists, nutritionists, social workers and anyone else who comes in contact with clients who are dealing with pain.

We do not recommend using your GPS for driving directions, as many roads are incorrectly marked in the navigation system and inputting our address will take you on a wild ride. Instead, we recommend using Google maps (above). Many prefer to travel the Blue Ridge Parkway route only May through October since the road closes often in winter.
