A New Dual Focus Program
This year, we’re offering training programs for two audiences:
Professionals will have an opportunity to complete comprehensive training on diagnosis and assessment, methods to reach even the most severely limited pain client, and ways to build individualized protocols that will guarantee success. And we also want to encourage partnerships between therapists and their clients who suffer from chronic pain.
People in pain can learn ways to empower themselves to achieve reliable results with a variety of tools that really work for them, both on their own and in partnership with therapists and other professionals.
Our 2019 Schedule
Our twofold plan is to offer six monthly modules in 2019:
- Four of the six modules will be for professionals in March, April, September/October and November/December
- Two will be for individuals struggling with various types of pain in May and January/February
Ideally, professionals will receive intensive training first and have the opportunity to refer clients for the client modules. Clients will pay a lower rate and receive two self-paced programs as soon as they register so that they don’t have to wait as long to get started.
For this group, we will plan a consultation component so that access to me is included at no additional cost for referring professionals as long as they sign up for the two modules for professionals just preceding the client modules.

Modules for People in Pain
2019 May and January/February 2020
Ideally, professionals will receive intensive training first and have the opportunity to refer clients for the client modules. Clients will pay a lower rate and receive two self-paced programs as soon as they register (in addition to the formal modules) so that they don’t have to wait as long to get started with their program. For this group, we will plan a consultation component so that access to me is included at no additional cost for referring professionals as long as they sign up for the two modules for professionals just preceding the client modules.
