Pain Management is a Key Battleground in the 21st Century Opioid Epidemic

A history of mental illness and/or substance abuse are high risk factors for opioid addiction, so the clients we see in our practices every day are more susceptible to the dangerous trap of opioid dependency. With reports of opioid related addictions and deaths on the rise, doctors and their patients are actively searching for alternative ways to manage pain. Due to our training in the assessment and treatment of mental illnesses and addictions, behavioral health professionals are uniquely poised to battle opioid addiction by helping clients learn to manage their chronic pain without pills. However, many of us feel that we don’t have the training or current information to face the very real challenges of treating clients who are experiencing chronic pain.

With over 30 years of practical experience in the treatment of physical pain, Dr. Robert Umlauf prepares you for effective practice with clients who are at risk of, or already in, the trap of opioid addiction. He will help you expand your assessment abilities to include the neurophysiological, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral factors involved in the development of chronic pain syndrome. You will learn to use specific self-regulation and behavioral activation skills that can help any client manage pain better. Dr. Umlauf will also present new medical research, alternative medicines, the impact of diet and nutrition, and effective evidence-based treatments. He employs highly interactive, hands-on experiences in teaching multidisciplinary approaches to pain management.
