Continued Education Course
Our course teaches successful management of symptoms linked to psychosocial stress (Psychophysiologic Disorders or PPD). The concepts that will be presented can transform these patients from among the most frustrating to among the most rewarding. A majority of patients with chronic pain, medically unexplained symptoms, chronic functional syndromes and many who fail to respond as expected to treatment can achieve far better than their usual outcomes.
Objectives include learning to:
Assess for current stresses, inadequate self-care skills, the long-term impact of Adverse Childhood Experience (ACEs) and somatic presentations of Depression, PTSD and Anxiety
Develop empathy skills that enable understanding of issues that patients struggle to articulate
Apply treatment measures that meet the specific needs of each patient
These concepts are based on detailed interviews with over 7000 patients suffering from PPD. The course was developed during over three decades of presentations to physicians, mental health professionals, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, behavioral health consultants and graduate students throughout North America and Europe.
While the course is designed for health professionals, patients will also find this material very helpful toward their recovery.
Our course will be available for continued medical education (CME) credit for various health professionals this summer, but we are planning to have the full course available to audit online (without CME credit) this Spring (subject to change).
