Psychology in Pain Management

Diving into the connections between trauma and complex chronic pain


Date: Sunday 21 April 2024
Time: 8.30am - 12.30pm


The Psychology in Pain Management pre-conference workshop provides an opportunity for discussion around key areas associated with managing the broader psychological issues in pain management, including understanding mechanisms of behavioural change, prevention of chronicity, and the challenges of managing the complexity of mental health comorbidities.

For its inaugural event, the 2024 workshop will focus on the complexity of managing chronic pain and trauma, with three key learning objectives:

  1. To provide a deeper understanding of the relationship between pain and trauma, to more effectively inform clinical decision-making;
  2. To use a set of foundational principles from pain neuroscience to effectively guide the assessment and management of those with pain and trauma; and
  3. To identify the outcomes patients might experience when we approach pain management from a trauma-informed perspective.
