For health professionals working in chronic pain self management
If you have chronic pain
Occupational therapists only
**Rant alert** Don’t call me an OT!
A plea for the New Year
Clinical reasoning – more than problem solving…
Confidence to strut your stuff
Occupational therapy theory
When the evidence is ignored
Biofeedback – or Things that go ‘beep’!
Changing the inner critic – positive statements
Checking thoughts during activity
Hypnosis and imagery in pain management
Motivating people to make changes (i)
Motivating people to make changes (ii)
Motivating people to make changes (iii)
Motivating people to make changes (iv)

Task Persistence – the least used coping skill
The process of change…
Pacing – aka working to quota, activity scheduling, chunking, time contingent activity, timetabling
Wishes for the New Year
Merry Christmas and Peace to All
Healing the ache within the pain.
