What To Expect in Living Well Workshops
Each Living Well workshop is 6-weeks in duration. Participants meet once a week for a 2.5 hour session. Then throughout the week participants’ work on their action plans, decision making steps and suggested reading. Participants will learn the skills to become a positive self-manager by developing a proactive approach to their pain and working with their health care professionals. Adopting a positive management style, participants will live a healthier life. Sessions are progressive so participants will want to attend all sessions to gain the most benefit from the workshop.
Participants begin by learning the importance of being their own self-manager and the self-management skills that will help them successfully live with their chronic pain conditions every day. These skills are useful not just for chronic pain management but for the management of any chronic disease condition.
After introducing the basics of self-management, participants then go on to define pain and discuss the difference between acute and chronic pain. We also explore the most common problems experienced by people with chronic pain and provide a list of resources to learn more about pain and the management of it.
