Chronic pain is an epidemic impacting the physical, mental, and emotional well being of so many of the clients we serve. Alicia and Brandon will work together to provide an introduction to pain, explain how is it treated in western medicine including both physical modalities and therapeutic interventions, and bridge how they can work collaboratively to treat the person as a whole. Together they hope to leave social workers more informed and empowered to recognize, treat, and link clients to the appropriate resources as they navigate this complex experience of pain.

Objectives: Participants will

1. Have a basic understanding of the types of pain and how to recognize them in clients
2. Understand what physical interventions are used for pain
3. Understand what therapeutic interventions are used for pain
