Living With Chronic Pain

The Living With Chronic Pain program is FREE and open to individuals living with chronic pain, their caregivers and significant others.

The workshop content doesn't focus on a specific disease or reason behind the chronic pain, rather it explores and teaches skills and techniques applicable for use while living with chronic pain. And, as participants discover, the pain isn't what brings folks together, it is the impact of the pain and the similarity of that impact on the lives of participants that brings everyone together.

The workshop is given in 2.5 hour sessions, once a week, for 6 weeks in community settings like senior centers, churches, libraries and hospitals. The workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, who have a chronic condition or are acting as caregivers to someone with a chronic condition.

Classes are highly participative. Mutual support and success build confidence in participants' ability to manage their health and maintain active and fulfilling lives.
