This is my review on my second week of Control My Pain Program from the Survive Strive Thrive team which was designed to teach people holistic strategies to heal their pain. The whole course is video and audio content which I think makes it more interesting and easy to understand.
Week Two is the Biopsychosocial Approach…
The first video is about how you did the previous week on starting a new physical activity and how you coped with it and ask you to join their Facebook Group to tell others how you have done over your first week and to meet other pain sufferers on this new journey to being more pain free.
The next video explains how one of the most important developments in medical research over the last 30 years has been the development of the Biopsychosocial Model of injury and illness. It then explains in detail of the Biopsychosocial holistic approach to body, mind and social wellbeing which I know will resonate with many chronic pain sufferers.
The next video follows a case study and has a quiz at the end of it followed by video four which defines Biopsychosocial Factors and after injury and illness it is normal to experience a range of Biopsychosocial factors. This video really helps you to understand in detail what the Biopsychosocial approach is.
Video five covers the Biopsychosocial factors affecting your pain with some questions which are available as an online quiz or a printable worksheet. Both a great and will really help you to think of any Biopsychosocial factors that may affect your pain. The final video finishes with the Biopsychosocial Approach list of helpful websites and books you could buy as well as the course resources.
This week’s program certainly had my brain working more on pain and how we deal with it and I found the Biopsychosocial Approach extremely useful.
