Using mindfulness-based occupational therapy interventions with clients with chronic pain (January 15, 2019)

Using mindfulness-based occupational therapy interventions with clients with chronic pain (January 15, 2019)


Presenter: Sarah Good

Mindfulness-based programs are effective in reducing pain intensity, increasing acceptance of pain and improving daily functioning in individuals with chronic pain (Hardison & Roll, 2016). How can occupational therapists who practice mindfulness personally utilize this intervention in their clinical practice with clients with chronic pain? This webinar will present an 8-week mindfulness-based occupational therapy program, Mindfulness for Symptom Management, for clients with chronic pain.  Benefits to mindfulness meditation and barriers to participation for individuals will be explored. Clinical examples will be shared. 

After taking part in this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the physiological and psychological benefits of practicing mindfulness meditation for individuals with chronic pain.
  2. Be able to identify the five skillful habits used as part of the Mindfulness for Symptom Management program and how they are addressed with individuals with chronic pain.
  3. Be able to outline some of the barriers to participating in mindfulness meditation for people with chronic pain.
Intermediate (3-5 years of experience in this specific practice or topic area).
