Joining us this week are Chris Main and Jason Beneciuk from an older episode recorded in Spring 2018. Chris Main is a Professor of Clinical Psychology (pain management) at Keele university in the UK. Jason Beneciuk is a physical therapist and researcher with a focus on psychologically informed physical therapy (PIPT).
In this episode, you will learn:
The history of PIPT, how clinicians can identify patients who would benefit from PIPT, some challenges, how clinicians can interpret the information they obtain using PIPT, the behavioral change aspect of PIPT, and recommendations for feedback.
