Participants can also expect to learn how to structure and format a skills training group, understand the roles and functions of facilitators, begin to teach the concepts of the DBT skills, identify and confront specific therapy-destroying behaviors found in group, lead meaningful mindfulness exercises, and assign specific homework assignments to help strengthen skill generalization.

    Location:

    Online d2l.msu.edu Asynchronous, non-interactive, online, self-paced

    Description:

    Not all injuries cause pain, and not all pain is due to injuries. An explosion of brain research demonstrates that all pain is constructed by the brain as a danger/alarm function. It is imperative to distinguish pain caused by structural disorders from pain caused by neural pathways in the brain. Appropriate treatment of pain is guided by this distinction with the goal of resolution of pain for individuals with neural pathway-induced pain.
