Basic application of TNE in the clinic is a good starting point, but it is not the end-point for most patients. The ultimate expression of recovery is behavior change: return to physical confidence. For many patients, some pain will continue to be a part of life, but it doesn’t need to rule their lives. In order to help patients move forward despite their pain, clinicians need to embrace and impart additional strategies such as goal setting, pacing, graded exposure and behavioral change. These strategies lead to functional, empowered patients being able to resume fulfilled, meaningful lives. This course bridges the gap from initial pain education to independence.

This class really helped switch my thinking from the biomedical model of pain to the biopscychosocial model. Finding that language that is both validating to the client and facilitates a different conversation than they have likely ever had about their pain is what I feel like I gained from this class.
I would highly recommend this course. You will continue to build upon a knowledge base, the sciences of pain and behavior change, and learn how to implement these things practically.
