Special Two-Hour workshop: 'Understanding stress and pain: clinical implications'

All welcome

This two-hour workshop will discuss some of the common mechanisms related to stress response and pain perception. It draws on the concept that pain is not a direct indication of what is happening in the tissues but that it is part of the body's output to threat and vulnerability.

At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

  • Describe key elements and functions of the neuro-immune-endocrine interactions that preserve the body's homeostasis;
  • Explain using a psycho-neuro-immunological approach, how early life events might make someone more pain vulnerable;
  • Appropriately apply stress-buffering strategies to clinical examples.
