The workshop will include input on the most recent research into pain and pain management, discussion and experiential mindfulness activities.
We will have a break half-way through the workshop. Drinks and snacks are available at the Hazel Court café.
A central part of the learning on this workshop will take place between students, in the group. For this learning to take place it is essential that the group environment is comfortable, friendly and supportive. We see it as a key part of our role to facilitate this environment.
We encourage you to wear loose, comfortable clothing – not jeans or anything tight around the waist.
If you’d like to do some background reading we recommend: Explain Pain (Butler and Moseley), Mindfulness for Health (Penman and Burch), Living Well with Pain and Illness (Burch) or A Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World (Williams).
