ASSESSMENT OF & EDUCATION FOR PATIENT WITH NEUROPLASTIC DISORDERS: AN ADVANCED TRAINING COURSE FOR MEDICAL PROVIDERS

Medical patients often present with chronic symptoms for which there is no clear medical explanation, including pain, anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia, and more. High rates of lifetime trauma, high levels of catastrophizing, and unresolved emotional experiences often underlie these conditions. Emerging clinical practices of Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT) and Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy (EAET) have been shown in randomized controlled trials to be effective for these individuals. This five-hour workshop brings together cutting-edge research and advanced clinical interventions to train participants to 1) determine with a high level of accuracy if patients have a neuroplastic condition or not; 2) understand the model of predictive processing and the role of the brain in these conditions; 3) perform brief neural circuit testing to gain buy-in and initiate pain reprocessing treatment; and 4) validate and refer patients to resources in a compassionate manner.

Taught by Dr. Howard Schubiner, this course offers the medical provider the opportunity to gain knowledge and learn skills that will be immediately applicable to their practices. Breakout groups will be offered for practicing key skills.

*Prerequisite: Registration for this course requires prior completion of our PRT Certification Training.

This course is designed for Physicians, Physician Assistants, and Nurses. ACCME accreditation offers 5 Continuing Medical Education credits to MDs, DOs, NPs, and PAs. Please visit our Continuing Education Credit page for further details. This training awards these medical providers a “Mastery” certification status on our Directory of Practitioners.
