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

We cannot thank you enough for providing such a wonderful course to our program participants. I don’t think I have ever seen such a high percentage of glowing evaluations for a Washington State PT Association course.”

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 needed 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 a great presenter. She brings a wealth of knowledge and clinical experience to teaching. I learned lots of practical strategies to offer my patients and to keep me calm. Taking her course has made me a better clinician and a more mindful, happier therapist.” – Lori Predmore, PT, Seattle, WA

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
