Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, there are no in-person support groups; all our programs are on Zoom.
Pain Connection is a program of the US Pain Foundation and has various programs for people with chronic pain and their significant others.
There are 14 State Chronic Pain Support Groups (CPSG) per month. The Arizona one meets monthly by Zoom on the 1st Wednesday from 11 am-12:30 pm. Would you please register at http://www.painconnection.org/support-groups/? The groups are free.
There are five National Chronic Pain Support Groups (CPSG) each month that your clients/patients can utilize without leaving their homes. It is a support group on Zoom with people participating from across the nation and internationally. The calls last between 1-1 ½ hour(s), and the last 15 minutes are saved for breathing and guided imagery techniques. Would you please look at http://www.painconnection.org? These calls are free.
There are seven Specialized groups: Basic Training for Veterans with Pain, LGBTQ+communities, Caregivers/partners, Spanish-speaking family groups, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), The Writing Room, and Teen Pain Warriors groups.
Building Your Toolbox is a combination of a webinar and support group. A presenter teaches a technique/skill, and then questions are asked by the participants.
Facebook Live is a weekly program that switches every other week. One week is Mindful Mondays with Gwenn Herman with program updates and teaching a skill. The other week is interviews with our support group leaders. Go to US Pain's Facebook page and look under events and videos to join in.
You can also benefit from buying our book "Making the Invisible Visible: Chronic Pain Manual for Health Care Providers," which you can buy online for $25 on Pain Connection's website http://www.painconnection.org. The manual is an excellent resource to help professionals and people with chronic pain explore ways to develop a quality life. All the proceeds go to our free programs.
"Format for Individualized Integrative Treatment (FIIT)© The 21st Century Model for Chronic Pain" webinar series is available for $195. Your purchase allows unlimited viewing and downloading of the 19 videos in this series. http://painconnection.org/webinars/index.html
The next Chronic Pain Support Group Leaders training will be held in January/February 2022. It is usually a 2-day in-person training program designed to train professionals/peer leaders to work with people with chronic pain and their families in a group setting. Our training objectives are to empower the leaders to teach group members to utilize their internal healing abilities, understand the psychosocial stages of pain and grief, learn the Pain Connection group model, incorporate complementary health approaches, and develop a Treatment Tree Plan. Tools and skills that participants will take away: Cognitive Reframing, Acupressure, Self-massage, Breathing Techniques, Meditation, and Guided Imagery. The fee for professionals is $400 and $300 for non-profits for Zoom, which includes the manual "Making the Invisible Visible: Chronic Pain Manual for Health Care Providers," materials, and monthly group supervision. There are no CEU's at this time.
The Zoom training will be conducted over four weeks. There will be two sessions per week from 2:00-4:00 pm ET on Tuesdays and Thursdays, each for 2 hours. January 11, 13, 18, 20, 25, 27, February 1, and 3, 2022. Everyone needs to attend every session and be seen the whole time on Zoom to receive a certificate and be listed as a US Pain Foundation support group if you want.
