Are you living with chronic pain? Start the New Year by owning your health with a free six-week, small group chronic pain self-management program led by the Rhode Island Department of Health.
Attend a Coffee Information Hour to learn more on Thurs, Feb 7 from 10 to 11 am.
Chronic Pain Self-Management Program is a Stanford University evidence-based (proven to work) six-week workshop. Small groups are led by two trained leaders. A complementary resource book - Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain, is given to each participant. Past workshop surveys have revealed that group members take comfort from being with other people experiencing similar challenges. Participants have also enjoyed interacting with others, brainstorming, gentle exercise, creating weekly action plans, and learning about new ways to self-manage symptoms by taking care of one’s own behavior and well-being.
