There is a significant need for evidence-based biopsychosocial clinical intervention for people living with chronic pain. This workshop will offer an introduction to the role of psychology in the management of chronic pain and prepare attendees to integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Chronic Pain (CBT-CP) into their clinical practice. In addition, a brief introduction to contemporary approaches within the field of pain psychology, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Pain Reprocessing Therapy will be provided.

- Attendees will understand how pain is processed in the brain and appreciate the modulating role of psychosocial factors in the experience of pain.
- Attendees will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to begin implementing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Chronic Pain in their own practice.
- Attendees will become cognizant of additional approaches (e.g. Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Pain Reprocessing Therapy) within the field of pain psychology.
