What we get into:

1. Her book: “A world of hurt: a Guide to classifying pain”. a paradigm shift in an epidemic problem.
2, The progressive research to support above. The 4 course series and opportunity to bring it to their practice.
3. The opportunity of a lifetime by being a university and continued education junkie.
4. We learn best by the patients that humble us not the ones that get better.
5. Pain and disability are the victim, negative words, thoughts and emotions are the culprit, positive words, thoughts and emotions are the cure!
6. Lessons from pain and your parents.
