Living Well with Chronic Pain

Ref: C2346005

Constant pain takes its toll; mentally and physically. It's hard to know what to accept and what to resist. It can be hard to stay motivated and to keep participating in an active and fulfilling life, but it isn't impossible. In this course your tutor will help you evaluate steps you can take to manage your pain as well as well-being exercises to improve your mood and help you cope with the additional life pressures that chronic pain can bring. This is a live course, delivered via zoom and canvas, there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and the tutor will endeavour to personalise sessions wherever possible. This programme is restricted to a maximum of 20 students.
