Educating People in Pain

Course Description


Save $100 by purchasing the Pain Conference Bundle



Neil Pearson presents the latest research findings on how to educate clients in chronic pain, or preferably, before they are in chronic pain to improve the likelihood of a full recovery.

Recent evidence supports changing the paradigm through which we educate our clients with persistent pain. However, providing this new information to our clients usually means that we are challenging their beliefs. Unhelpful pain beliefs are powerful, resistant to change and are often supported by one's community and reinforced by other health professionals.

If we are to change beliefs, we must provide our clients with experiences - whether intellectual, entertaining or kinesthetic - that create cognitive dissonance, and motivate the individual to consider an alternate view of pain and recovery. 


  • Explore the research evidence supporting the beneficial effects of teaching clients about pain and the nervous system
  • Integrate the key components of pain neurophysiology education into your current biopsychosocial model of pain management
  • Begin to practice ways to provide clients with experiences that create cognitive dissonance, and motivate the individual to consider an alternate view of pain and recovery
