"It hasn't really made any change in how I'm feeling physically but emotionally I'm doing better with it. I'm not as hard on myself as I was before. Like I've learned to talk nicer to myself."

Workshop Description:
The Chronic Pain Self-Management Program is a workshop given two and a half hours, once a week, for six weeks, in community settings such as senior centers, churches, libraries and hospitals. Workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are non-health professionals with chronic pain themselves.

Subjects covered include: 1) techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, fatigue, isolation, and poor sleep 2) appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility, and endurance, 3) appropriate use of medications, 4) communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals, 5) nutrition, 6) pacing activity and rest, and, 7) how to evaluate new treatments.

Each participant in the workshop receives a copy of the companion books, Living a Healthy Life With Chronic Conditions, 4th Edition and Chronic Pain Workbook.

It is the process in which the program is taught that makes it effective. Classes are highly participative, where mutual support and success build the participants’ confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active and fulfilling lives.

The Self-Management Program will not conflict with existing programs or treatment. It is designed to enhance regular treatment. The program gives participants the skills to coordinate all the things needed to manage their health, as well as to help them keep active in their lives
