Module 1

March 2019

This module emphasizes How the Neuroscience of Trauma and Attachment Theory Can Inform Pain Interventions. We will study how the latest advances in polyvagal theory, trauma and recovery, and attachment theory can point to ways of evaluating and intervening in various kinds of pain conditions. The focus is placed on:

  • How to transform the complexity of chronic and complex emotional and physical pain into simple targets for success;
  • How to create pain protocols that even the most limited clients can say “yes” to;
  • Polyvagal, trauma, and attachment theory and how each can open essential doors into client pain pathways;
  • Work with Pain and Addiction (part 1);
  • The language of suggestion for solidifying the alliance, introducing new concepts and skills, and improving the client’s self-attachment;
  • Ways to identify, connect with, and work effectively with perinatal, early life, and developmental/attachment trauma and the felt sense links to pain and emotional suffering.

Module 2

April 2019

During this month, we will present a strong emphasis on developmental and early life trauma, why the effects are so hard to identify, and simple ways to reconstruct them with the help of your client, and specific strategies for repair and integration. Ego-State Therapy is explored as a treatment of choice for dissociative problems, fragmentation, and for work with the “I” of pain.

  • Encouraging self-narratives of developmental and attachment trauma: How to reconstruct preverbal experiences and needs for repair and steer the pain client towards resilience and pain-free experiences.
  • The Window of Acceptance, self-regulation, and co-regulation strategies;
  • Working with self-fragmentation and the Divided Self using specific ego state approaches to promote wholeness and reduce symptoms and emotional distress;
  • Finding and working with specific sensory and emotional links to shame, panic and fear, rage, and to the freedom of expansion and joy;

Module 3

September 2019

This module features study of complex chronic pain, atypical pain syndromes, migrating pain and other challenging presentations for the therapist including clients who are not responsive to any intervention, those who present “bipolar swings” with pain, and those who cannot approach their pain or its sources without becoming massively overwhelmed with fear, shame, and collapse.

We will study the mechanisms of surgery and invasive medical procedures, ways to help clients prepare and become self-advocates with medical professionals, and strategies for reversing what has not worked in surgeries of the past. Professionals will also learn how to help clients track and achieve success during the surgery recovery process including pain reduction, shifting relationship to different parts of the body, and ensuring the return of vitality.

  • Complex and atypical chronic pain, challenging client presentations for the therapist and how to utilize them as part of treatment, and ways of stabilizing the most volatile and dissociated clients.
  • Strategies to help rebalance the Autonomic Nervous System to promote safety and stability and more responsiveness;
  • Comprehensive preparation for complex clients for surgery and recovery;
  • Destructive ego states that can block progress and how to convert them to become helper states and co-therapists;
  • Advanced strategies for pain protocols including rapid stabilization, working with the “conflict free” self, and resource stacking;
  • How to work effectively with the triple threats of pain, trauma, and addiction;
  • When medication is necessary, how to prevent dependency, avoidance, and overuse through client partnership and the placebo response.

Module 4

October 2019

The last module for professionals highlights work with emotional pain and suffering. Strategies include how to link reactivity to survival responses and how to release somatic and sensory traces in the body so that pain resolves and the organism supports a more ventral vagal connection.

We will examine issues that block the therapeutic partnership and other relationships to prevent optimal healing and ways to find and orchestrate repair. We will also include special topics such as palliative and end of life pain and strategies to work with the cumulative effects of comprehensive, long-term medical treatment such as multiple surgeries and ongoing cancer treatment.

  • The embodiment of emotions to find and safely release links to incomplete survival responses;
  • How to work with the body more effectively in order to gain access to key emotional states, and regulate somatic and emotional reactivity;
  • How to work effectively with intense emotional states including shame, fear, grief, confusion, and rage;
  • The therapeutic relationship as the most effective healing tool, and how to repair disconnect and rupture through the ventral vagal connection;
  • How to teach clients to use co-regulation to calm unbalancing emotions in daily life;
  • How to work with the end of life pain and palliative care;
  • Ways of using special breathing, somatic, cognitive, and self-hypnotic tools to teach clients to use valuable strategies as self-treatment;
  • How to work with the cumulative effects of long-term medical treatments using short-term intentions.

Testimonials

Thank you, Maggie, for your ability to unite the powerful forces of body, mind, and spirit to offer hope to those in chronic pain. Your skillful blend of science and philosophy makes this program appealing to individuals who want to understand why things work, as well as to individuals who just want to know there’s something they can do to help themselves. You’ve addressed delicate issues, such as victimization, in a compassionate and non-judgmental style. Your program offers safe, effective, and no-cost strategies that are often overlooked by others. As a therapist, I’ve found some of the techniques to be just as helpful for emotional pain as for physical pain. Your success with this program means success for those who make the commitment to reduce chronic pain.
Joan M. LPC, LMFT
As a counselor I have worked with a high number of people coping with chronic pain and other debilitating health conditions that also create challenges on a mental health level. I am impressed by the comprehensive, holistic approach to pain management that Maggie Phillips offers. She addresses the whole person, not just the symptom, which is my own philosophy as well. I often recommend her books, audio materials and the online Reversing Chronic Pain Program to my clients as a valuable set of resources to help them cope on a daily basis.
