MPA Spring Conference 2018

Psychology's Response to the Opioid Epidemic and Chronic Pain in Michigan

Workshop Description
This seminar will help psychologists understand and treat chronic pain and opioid abuse.  These problems are complex and involve different dimensions. Variables will be addressed in the area of opioid abuse, misuse and overdose. The course will cover the basic neurobiology of addiction and diagnosis of opioid dependence even with chronic pain.  Effectiveness of different treatment approaches will be examined as well as the CDC guidelines and the new Opioid Laws becoming effective in Michigan.  Evidence based use of CBT for chronic pain and variables for successful outcome will be examined.  The psychosocial challenges of chronic pain will be reviewed along with interpersonal and communication patterns within families and couples that hinder or help with physical pain.
