This course is approved for 0.8 CEUs (8 contact hours) for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants.

About This Program

Dr. Skulpan Asavasopon raises awareness about the important roles of the mind and the Edutreatment model in the chronification and de-chronification of pain. Dr. Christopher Powers raises awareness regarding the important role of a movement-centered approach in the chronification and de-chronification of pain.

At this exclusive Mini Mastermind Pain Intelligence Course, you will learn pragmatic and effective methods for addressing complex and difficult patients through the application of the Pain Edutreatment model. Through this integrated mental and physical approach, you will learn new ways to connect with your patients, how to redirect patients toward their goals by demystifying chronic pain, and how to reinforce healthier mind and movement behaviors to reverse the pain chronification process.
