Clinicians need to be knowledgeable about integrative pain management for either direct use in the clinic or for establishing a good rapport and therapeutic alliance with patients and clients. This interactive presentation will provide practical intervention strategies that may be used as an adjunct to standard practice or to establish safe and effective home programs for acute and chronic pain.
