The iconic EP3 seminar is back with three days of clinically relevant and nutritious education – this time in beautiful Brisbane! Lorimer Moseley and David Butler are joined by Professor Johan Vlaeyen, world renowned for his fear-avoidance model. Join us for this unique educational event as Lorimer the neuroscientist, Johan the psychologist and David the educationalist tackle the massive issues of your client’s fear of movement and fear of pain, and your own fear of what to do with it all!

EP3 2019 Guest Instructor: Professor Johannes Vlaeyen
The Psychologist Maastricht University | Research Gate

Johan is probably the most famous Belgian ever to visit Australia! He is a world renowned health psychologist with numerous international awards. A Professor at the Universities of Leuven and Maastricht, Johan’s experimental work includes studies on the ways people acquire pain-related fear and disability and what clinicians can do about it. He helped develop the fear-avoidance model of chronic pain and is a co-author of Pain Related Fear: Exposure based Treatment of Chronic Pain (IASP Press 2012). Johan throws a wide professional net; his work also embraces other chronic bodily symptoms such as tinnitus and fatigue. He is right into translational research and he and his team have developed fear reduction treatments for chronic pain and tinnitus.

Dr Lorimer Moseley
The Neuroscientist Body in Mind | TEDx Talk | Painful Yarns book

Lorimer is Professor of Clinical Neurosciences and Foundation Chair in Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia. He has over 25 years clinical experience working with people in persistent pain, has authored hundreds of articles, multiple books and chapters and continues to present keynote lectures globally. His community outreach and whole of community education initiatives are internationally renowned. His work is cited in clinical guidelines internationally. He is an honoured member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, an Honorary Fellow of the ANZCA Faculty of Pain Medicine and a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences.



EP3 2019 is open to all professionals working with people experiencing acute and chronic pain, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, doctors, psychologists, nurses, chiropractors, osteopaths, massage therapists and others. A strength of the Explain Pain course is that participants come from many professions, so please come with an open mind. Pre-reading the Explain Pain Second Edition book would also be ideal.

Course Times

Registration Friday: 7.30-8.30am
Friday: 8.30 am – 5.00pm
Saturday: 8.30 am – 5.00pm
Sunday: 8.30 am – 5.00pm


The course will be a blend of lectures, interaction and practical workshops. There will be ample time to mix with the presenters throughout the three days.

What is the difference between a regular Explain Pain course and an EP3?

The Explain Pain course and the EP3 seminar are very different educational opportunities. Explain Pain is our standard course covering the core pain biology, curriculum setting and story telling. EP3 is about what three of the most influential people in pain treatment are thinking and doing NOW – so every EP3 is unique.

I’ve been to an EP3 before – shall I come again?

YES! There will be lots of completely new original material, new science (and new jokes).
