    THE ROLE OF PSYCHOLOGY IN ADDRESSING PAIN AND RELATED OPIOID DEPENDENCE

    FRIDAY, April 23, 2021 | 10 a.m. central – 5:00 P.M.

    VIRTUAL LIVE ZOOM Conference - (Registration required)

    Eligible for Continuing Education: 6 Credits

    --------

    Chronic pain affects approximately 20% of the U.S. adult population. Our nation's opioid epidemic has spurred interest in nonpharmacologic options to assist with managing pain. Psychological interventions for chronic pain can reduce or eliminate the use of prescription opioids and improve patient functioning and recovery, and the U.S. Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force has recommended educating patients, clinicians, and the public about the role of psychological pain management interventions and expanding access to these services.

    The Psychological Pain Management Training developed by the American Psychological Association, will help address this gap by building the nonpharmacological pain management workforce in Oklahoma. In this training nationally recognized experts will provide participants with a strong understanding of the biopsychosocial nature of pain and the use of psychological and behavioral approaches to address chronic pain in adult populations.

    Sequence XI: Risk Management and Vulnerabilities: Yours, Mine and Ours

    Dr. Daniel O. Taube - Speaker


    SATURDAY, April 24, 2021 | 10 a.m. central – 5:00 P.M. (Registration and virtual networking opens at 9:00 a.m.)

    --------

    For close to 30 years, The Trust has been providing continuing education through workshops and individual consultations with a focus on improving psychologists’ risk management skills and strategies. These workshops have evolved from basic concepts and strategies, to a more applied, integrated, and strategic approach to help you protect yourself from adverse disciplinary and legal actions and to support competent practice.

    For this newest workshop, The Trust Risk Management Consultants have continued to review data from nearly 90,000 consultations provided to date, along with relevant research, to determine the programs practitioners often confront, and potential strategies for addressing them.  The topics in this new workshop will include an updated review of decision science and its implications for bias and vulnerability in clinical, ethical and risk management decision making, strategies for reducing the impact of these vulnerabilities, issues arising in remote services (during and beyond the pandemic), addressing boundaries in advocacy by professionals on behalf of their clients/patients, and the risk management implications of self-care (or its absence) for psychologists.


    Objectives

    • Describe three general challenges to unbiased decision-making
    • Identify three vulnerabilities that can affect clinician decision-making, in particular
    • Summarize three risk-related aspects to remote service provision
    • List four strategies to address decision-making bias and improve ethical and risk management choices

    • Differentiate general areas in which professional advocacy is and is not appropriate

    • Identify two issues when psychotherapy patients make quasi-forensic requests

    • Evaluate three methods of engaging in self-care to support better practice and risk-management

    Advancing the Role of Psychological Pain Management Care in Addressing the Opioid Epidemic

    A Forum with Federal, State, and Local Policymakers


    FRIDAY, April 30, 2021 | 10 a.m. central – 12:30 P.M.

    VIRTUAL LIVE ZOOM Conference - (Registration required and session will be recorded to share later)

    -------------

    Chronic pain affects approximately 20% of the U.S. adult population. Our nation's opioid epidemic has spurred interest in nonpharmacologic options to assist with managing pain. Psychological interventions for chronic pain can reduce or eliminate the use of prescription opioids and improve patient functioning and recovery, and the U.S. Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force has recommended educating patients, clinicians, and the public about the role of psychological pain management interventions and expanding access to these services.

    The Psychological Pain Management Training developed by the American Psychological Association, was held on April 23 for Oklahoma psychologists which addressed building the nonpharmacological pain management workforce in Oklahoma. In this training nationally recognized experts provided behavioral healthcare experts with a strong understanding of the biopsychosocial nature of pain and the use of psychological and behavioral approaches to address chronic pain in adult populations.

    In connection with this training, the Oklahoma Psychological Association and the American Psychological Association are hosting a separate forum on psychological pain management for federal, state, local, and private sector policymakers on Friday, April 30 from 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. virtually. The forum will feature an overview of evidence-based psychological pain management interventions and their potential role in patient care, as well as a discussion of policies affecting access to these services. We also strive to have a manufacturing component to address the ongoing needs of intervention options for this workforce demographic.
