This is my review on my third 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 Three is Thoughts and Feelings…
The first video introduces Thoughts and Feelings by learning all about cognitive behavioural therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
The next video is the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Model and it is the first time that I have properly understood clearly about cognitive behavioural therapy for pain. It is all to do with how you think about your pain that impact on your quality of life, and pain and distress.
The next video is a case study on how Thoughts Influence Actions which are so true when you are in chronic pain.
The fourth video in week three is another quiz on common patterns of thinking.
The fifth video is all about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which also includes a quiz or you can download it.
The last two videos in the Thoughts and Feelings project ist of helpful websites and books you could buy as well as the course resources.
I found this weeks program extremely useful in explaining all about Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which is now widely used to help people with not only pain but other problems they are dealing with. I’ve read a book in the past about it but these videos explain it much easier and is something I will definitely be trying in the near future.
