Empowered Relief

Group Description

An evidence-based, skills-based class that requires only one session.  Learn about persistent pain and what you can do to help yourself. Gain pain relief skills that you can use right away. Receive a free binaural relaxation audiofile. Create a personal plan for pain relief.

Offered in a virtual format (via Microsoft Teams), participants will be required to have access to a computer, or tablet, that has both a camera and microphone and an internet connection. For skills practise after the class, we encourage participants to have stereo-capable headphones or earbuds.

This course is open to the public, but registration is required. Participants will receive a presentation slidedeck, pain survey, and handout to assist with developing your personal plan and practicing daily skills.
