This course is designed to provide participants with a 4-hour introduction to the latest evidence and clinical application of therapeutic neuroscience education for patients in pain. Current best evidence has shown that neuroscience educational strategies utilizing neurobiology and neurophysiology are able to reduce pain, increase function, reduce fear and catastrophization, improve movement and change cognitions and brain activation during pain experiences. Therapeutic neuroscience education changes patient beliefs regarding their pain, thus reducing the threat of pain. This class will discuss the evolution of therapeutic neuroscience education and why neuroscience education is needed in patient care.

Course Objectives/Outcomes

    • Discuss the latest evidence for therapeutic neuroscience education.
    • Demonstrate the clinical ability to apply therapeutic neuroscience education to clinical practice with the use of at least one metaphor shared in class.
