Carolyn, you have been way ahead of all of us in appreciating the contribution of stress to the experience of pain and the value of mindfulness in pain treatment.” – Lorimer Moseley, PhD FACP, University of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia

Outstanding course! This work is so important both for our patients and ourselves. Carolyn is a master clinician and educator who skillfully blends research, clinical practice and personal experience. I highly recommend this course! “– Jason Hardage, DPT, Alameda, CA

I absolutely loved this course! I feel like this has been the missing piece of my practice; something I felt was innately need but was unaware of the research backing and the easy ways to incorporate the material. I feel this information has really bridged some gaps in the skills that I have and I am thrilled to have better ways to explain the cognitive and emotional aspects of pain. I think all PTs should take this course and am hoping to bring the information to an inservice for my colleagues.

Carolyn is the most amazing instructor. You can feel her kindness and compassion throughout the course. I learned a great amount about pain, mindfulness and most importantly, how to be a more attentive and compassionate provider. She took a complex topic and discussed it with ease.” – Allison Lindeman, DPT, San Carlos, CA
