Inspiring change. Getting results
The Understand Pain workshops encourage, educate and enable individuals and teams who work with or for people suffering pain and the sufferers themselves.
Pain Coach is an approach based on inspiring people to be and do their very best. Clarifying a vision of success and working upon a range of skills and practices enables the person to make an onward journey in this direction. This is both true for the clinician developing his or her skills, and the person overcoming their pain.
When you participate in an UP workshop, you are helping to address the global pain crisis
The workshops are listed below, but there is something else that is really important about them. When you pay for a place and attend a workshop, you are also supporting those in need. For each workshop that is paid for, UP will deliver one in a community or location where they most need it, free to the end users.
Further, at each workshop there will be a place for a local healthcare student as a way of inspiring the next generation of clinicians and therapists.
Workshops for clinicians & therapists
Understanding pain is fundamental to the choices you make as a clinician and the programmes you design for the person in pain.
The Pain Coach programme develops your skills and attributes by working upon your strengths and addressing areas that need improving. This is an on-going and exciting process of learning.
- 1/2 day workshops
- Full day workshops
- 1:1 mentoring
Workshops for patients
We establish an answer to the question ‘what is pain?’ before exploring ways to overcome pain and live life.
These workshops are designed for groups of people suffering pain. For example, from a GP practice, a charity or support group who wish to be inspired and learn together.
- 1 hour interactive talk + skills practice
- 1/2 day workshop
- Full day workshop
Workshops for professionals
There are a number of professions that work with people who suffer pain and need to have a good understanding of the nature of the problem.
- Employees of charities that support conditions featuring pain
- Social workers
We explore the problem of pain relevant to your practice and your role in supporting the person to overcome their pain.
Workshops for policy makers & decision makers
It is vital that those in positions of responsibility and those representing the people who suffer, understand pain. Having a grip upon the issues that face this huge group of people (100 million in Europe), gaining insight into their lived experience and recognising the outcomes that they desire are put into context by truly understanding pain.
If you have a particular need or interest in pain that is not covered above, please contact us and we can work together to create a bespoke programme for you.
