You can benefit from the program if you are eager to: learn more about yourself, learn non-medicinal ways of managing long-term pain, and learn how thoughts, emotions and behaviour can impact your pain. 

You must be willing and open to exploring current pain science and new possibilities in pain management, as well as challenging old attitudes and beliefs. Throughout the group program you will take an active part in learning strategies to improve your quality of life and developing a new plan for living more successfully with long-term pain.

During the sessions, the facilitators present material on by blending lecture, discussion from group participants, and hands-on learning experiences.

  •     Halifax PSMP format:  Sessions are held in the fall, winter, and spring. Please ask the program coordinator about session length and dates. Online and in-person options are available.
