    Working with Clients Experiencing Chronic Illness/Pain

    Intermediate Level Workshop

    Chronic illness and chronic pain can be a challenging topic for most people especially if they have never had personal experience with a long term or chronic health condition. There are many conditions, illnesses, and diseases that fall into the category of chronic illness/pain. As mental health professionals we spend years understanding the different disorders and diagnosis within the DSM; but how many of us mental health professionals also understand chronic medical conditions? How many of us are aware they are likely comorbid with anxiety and depression, and how the illness impacts every aspect of a client’s life?

    This presentation will expand your understanding of what constitutes chronic illness/pain while providing an overview of common situations and experiences that individuals living with chronic illness/pain experience on a regular basis. This presentation will also work to challenge your individual bias regarding chronic illness/pain and help you understand what your client may be experiencing including those resistant clients. Additionally, this training will explore the impact on the chronic illness/pain has on relationships and family dynamics. Furthermore, this workshop will focus on how chronic illness and pain have been impacted by COVID-19 and communities of color.
