      Living Well with Chronic Pain Workshop

      This is a 6 week class, once a week on Wednesday mornings from 9:30am to 12:00pm. The Living Well with Chronic Pain Workshop provides information and skills to those living with chronic pain, helping them better manage their condition and achieve their best health and wellness. This FREE workshop is for adults of all ages experiencing a wide range of chronic pain conditions such as musculoskeletal pain, fibromyalgia, repetitive strain injury, chronic regional pain syndrome, post stroke or central pain, neuropathic pain, among others. These workshops are also open to family members and caregivers. Participants meet in groups of 5 to 16 individuals for 2.5 hours, once a week for 6 weeks, and will also receive a free copy of the book Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain and the audio CD Relaxation for Mind and Body. The workshops are led by two trained leaders who are usually volunteers with chronic pain themselves. Participants report improvement in their lifestyle and general health, as well as improved symptom management and better communication with their doctors. They also spend less time in the hospital compared to those who have not taken the workshop. This workshop is an evidence-based self-management program originally developed at Stanford University and currently supported by the Self-Management Resource Center.
