Acceptance, Mindfulness, and Values in Chronic Pain

By Noigroup HQ Education for all 22 Jan 2016

Clever, funny and a nice guy

Our friends over at Neuroscience Research Australia are hosting Associate Professor Kevin Vowles for a two day skills building workshop. Kevin really blew the audience away at EP3 2015 with his energy, knowledge, expertise and all-round niceness. Here’s a little sample of Kevin at work:

Kevin was able to give us a taste of how ACT, mindfulness and values work can assist individuals experiencing chronic pain, but we only just scratched the surface. The two day workshop in Sydney from 19-20 March will really let participants get their teeth into Kevin and his work.

Check out this page for all the details, but here is what you’ll walk away from the two days with:

The ability to:

Demonstrate an understanding of the nature of complexity in chronic pain from an ACT perspective and an enhanced skill base when it comes to addressing this complexity.

Apply practiced clinical exercises to initiate an effective direction in treatment.

Apply practiced clinical exercises designed to augment acceptance and mindfulness, as well as aid in values clarification and the promotion of values-based action for use in chronic pain settings.

Utilise received training and reference materials in clinical practice.
