Provider Spotlight: Chronic Pain & The SSP with Les Aria, PhD
January 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Unyte-iLs’ Provider Spotlight hosts Les Aria, PhD this month, for a discussion about why safety is key to healing chronic pain.
Recent studies show that chronic pain may not always stem from structural or tissue damage, but instead may persist because the nervous system is stuck in physio-psychological states of survival. In this presentation, Les Aria, PhD, discusses the applications of Polyvagal Theory (PVT) in transforming chronic pain towards pain recovery. The Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP) is also discussed with clinical examples of overlapping conditions such as trauma and chronic pain, including common barriers to success in using the SSP. This presentation is a clinical narrative of hope and transformation of healing chronic pain.
Please note, this presentation is intended only for mental or physical health professionals.
