Fibromyalgia is complex. It is a chronic pain condition that involves many systems of the mind and body, including pain perception issues, emotional dysregulation, cognitive processing disorders and more. Fortunately, mental health practitioners are poised to have a profound impact on the quality of life of a Fibro sufferer. In this introductory course I present a general picture of what Fibro looks like, and a download of tools for practitioners — whether you have a solid background in CBT or not — to navigate the therapeutic issues involved. Each of the 10 modules comes with a homework assignment to deepen your understanding of both the patient and the material.
For those interested in more in-depth training and a certification in Fibromyalgia care, enroll in the advanced course following this one.
