Explain Pain, Geelong with David Butler, Brendon Haslam
Guess who’s coming to a town near me? Some of my favourite people!!
I’ve been raving about NOI group for some time – at first, yes, I thought they were all mad. But having read and followed this group’s research I now understand a little more about how pain ticks and this has helped me a great deal.
More so, professionals who have access to this science and training can make a great deal of difference to those of us living with chronic pain.
And as a result…. (stay and dream with me for a minute) the people living with pain will begin to flow out of the chronic pain bottleneck and get on with their lives.
And that means professionals can then go on to help even more people because the people living with pain won’t need so many appointments.
And then we will all be able to live far happier (and in less pain) ever after.
Ok, so maybe it won’t all happen as quickly as that. But at least there will be flow instead of the stagnancy we’re all in now.
Did you know there are thousands of people waiting to be diagnosed and treated? The longer they wait in pain, the worse the situation becomes – don’t I know it after waiting 4.5 years for my own diagnosis.
NOI’s explanation of pain will prove brilliant for some and for others may not deliver the effect they hope. But it is definitely worth learning and storing in that strange brain of both the people who are living with pain and those who treat people living with chronic pain.
So what I’m saying to the professionals reading this, is:

In a world experiencing an epidemic of chronic pain and increasing evidence of the failure of synthetic drugs, simple but extremely powerful educational tools can effectively target the natural pain treatment systems within us all.
Knowledge is power. In the new series of Explain Pain courses delivered by NOI instructors around the world, contemporary pain sciences are made accessible and understandable for all.
We know more about pain in the last twenty years than in the thousand years before and it’s all providing answers to “why do I hurt the way I do” and “what can I do about it”. The knowledge is applicable to young and old, from back pain to hemiplegia and general aching to the complexities of phantom pain and complex regional pain syndrome.
Explain Pain works to reduce catastrophisation and negative pain beliefs and when combined with active treatment, reduces pain and enhances return to work and play. Explain Pain has no side effects, is available around the clock, and you can share the knowledge and strategies with others.
Don’t miss this opportunity. NOI Explain Pain courses are fun, intellectually stimulating, based on evidence, always challenging, and integrate the Explain Pain ecosystem of Explain Pain,The Explain Pain Handbook: Protectometer, and Explain Pain Supercharged. You will come away with the most impressive therapeutic tool set ever!
Objectives (Why I want you to do this course?!)
By the end of this course participants will have:
- reconceptualised pain and stress based on neuroimmunology, modern pain sciences and bioplasticity of homeostatic systems
- constructed a conceptual change framework to deliver individual and group educational therapy
- gained an understanding of the growing evidence for Explain Pain and recognise opportunities to integrate Explain Pain with other biopsychosocial evidence based strategies.
- gathered a collection of therapeutic narratives using metaphor, literal story and linked multimedia, and the skills to construct patient centred education interventions in real time
- developed the skills to use the Protectometer to identify immediately applicable and educationally informed multimodal treatment strategies
- built the confidence to plan and deliver treatment for all patients with persistent pain and stress, and educate other stakeholders
