Webinar Details

While having a history of trauma in one’s life does not predict the development of chronic pain, the two are highly correlated by both research and clinical practice. Come learn what trauma is and isn’t, one theory of how it develops, and how it impacts the nervous system, increasing the risk of developing not just psychological struggles later but also physical ones including chronic pain. A brief overview of treatment options for both will also be discussed.

There will be time for questions and answers.
