  • March Webinar -PATH-Pain: A Behavioral Intervention For Older Adults With Negative Emotions And Chronic Pain In Primary Care

    Title: PATH-Pain: A Behavioral Intervention For Older Adults With Negative Emotions And Chronic Pain In Primary Care

    Presenter: Dimitris Kiosses, PhD, Weill Cornell Medicine

    Dr. Kiosses will discuss PATH-Pain, a new behavioral intervention for older adults with chronic pain and negative emotions in primary care. PATH-Pain is a manualized 8-week program for primary care that consists of 8 weekly individual sessions and 1 group educational session. All sessions are designed for patients and a willing and available study partner (e.g., family member, caregiver, friend). The goals of PATH-Pain are to reduce negative emotions associated with pain and pain-related disability, increase positive emotions and increase engagement in pleasurable activities; and shift attention during experiences of pain to help reduce pain intensity.

    Presenter: Una Makris, MD, UT Southwestern Medical Center

    Chronic musculoskeletal pain (including chronic back pain) and comorbid mental health diagnoses (including depression) remain common, costly and challenging to manage.

    Presenter: Mary Janevic, PhD, MPH, University of Michigan

    African American older adults living in resource-challenged settings are at high risk for pain-related disability, and have limited opportunities to learn chronic pain self-management skills that may help improve function.  Dr. Janevic will describe the development of a “high tech/high touch” pain self-management intervention that integrates physical activity monitoring and web-based instruction with support from a community health worker, to be tested in a pilot study in Detroit.

  • June Webinar – Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Chronic Pain in Older Adults

    Title: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Chronic Pain in Older Adults

    Presenter: Julie Wetherell, PhD, University of California at San Diego Overview: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a psychotherapy model that deemphasizes efforts to change aversive internal experiences and prioritizes living in accordance with deeply held values, even in the presence of distress or discomfort. It is one of few therapeutic modalities that the American Psychological Association’s Division 12 (Society for Clinical Psychology) describes as having “strong research support” for chronic or persistent pain. Dr. Wetherell’s presentation will describe the ACT model and discuss the use of ACT for chronic pain, with an emphasis on factors that may make ACT particularly appropriate for older adults.
