About The Event
We are really excited to welcome Professor of Clinical Psychology at Uppsala University in Sweden, Lance McCracken to talk about the how we can engender more cooperation and integration in our approach to chronic pain
Approaches to chronic pain are rather divided and even oppose each other. This may not be ideal as this often creates competition, resistance, defense, and ignorance, to be frank. In this division people within isolated schools of thought may work to promote a narrow version of success, fail to join forces with people from other approaches, and fail to build something better. This can create “silos” in practice and impede progress in research. None of this is necessarily intentionally selfish or malicious. It is just human nature. So, is there a way to frame approaches to chronic pain that might engender more cooperation and integration? There may be. One way to integrate could include for providers to adopt a process-based therapy approach. During this session we will discuss what this means.
One day treatment providers might not identify themselves with divided approaches or different therapy types. People from different disciplines might operate on separate processes within their own professional competencies. At the same time, if outcomes are agreed in common, what would there be to stop these approaches from integrating with each other?
This is going to be an incredible Le Pub Homebrew!
