Join us for an interactive discussion led by Dr. Bennet E. Davis, Director of the Pain Recovery Program at Sierra Tucson. Attendees for this intermediate presentation are behavioral healthcare professionals in private practice, treatment program clinical directors/staff, community agencies and various mental health disciplines. Dr. Davis will provide a neuroscience informed overview of what pain is, from nociceptive pain to neuropathic pain, and to pain for psychological reasons. We’ll build on that foundation in a discussion of “How to talk to your patients about pain in a way that engages them in appropriate care”. At the end of the session we will take a step back from the addiction narrative, challenge the assumptions that underlie our current approach to the opioid crisis, and build on the first segment of the session to recast the opioid crisis as a trauma crisis, requiring somewhat different resources and a different approach.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain how to distinguish pain for psychological reasons from nociceptive and neuropathic pain.
  2. Describe to their patients the cause of their pain and how treatment flows form the cause, in a way that does not suggest “it’s in your head” but rather engages and empowers patients to participate in treatment.
  3. Explain how to recognize and know what to do about high risk prescribing of opioid.
