PAIN ASSESSMENT AND

INTERVENTION FROM A

PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGICAL

PERSPECTIVE ONLINE COURSE

This 45 hour CE credit home study course presented by Richard A. Sherman, Ph.D. is divided into 25 units. Each unit consists of a recorded audiovisual lecture, one of more chapters of reading in the texts, review questions to be answered, and a real time recitation with me. The lecture portion of the course is presented through a series of audiovisual lectures profusely illustrated by power-point slides. There isn't enough lecture time to cover all of the practices - especially those related to pharmacology - so the course readings will be very important. Participants that sign up for the course, will receive two CDs via mail that contain the audiovisual lectures, background materials, and a copy of the slide set upon which the lectures are based for notes during attendance at the lecture recordings. After each lecture, participants are required to answer a brief series of essay questions about each topic covered during the lecture, e-mail their answers to Dr. Sherman, and then speak with him by phone about each topic. These conversations give participants an opportunity to ask questions and for Dr. Sherman to fill in gray areas and provide additional information on topics of special interest.

Learning objectives: This course is intended to provide a basic understanding of the physiology, biochemistry, and psychology underlying pain mechanisms. Provide sufficient knowledge about how pain mechanisms work to apply the knowledge to their evaluative and therapeutic interventions. Give detailed information about several pain syndromes (including headache, RSD, low back pain, and phantom limb pain) to be abreast of current knowledge and be aware that similar depths of knowledge exist for most pain syndromes and must be searched out before attempting to evaluate or treat people with the problem. Summarize the strengths and weaknesses of evidence supporting the efficacy of self-regulatory interventions for prevention and reduction of various pain problems. Provide extensive examples of how to perform evaluations and non-pharmacological interventions.

Format: Course Concept and Objectives: Students learn by watching audiovisual lectures provided on CDs, reading assignments both from materials provided on the CD and standard texts, and interacting with their instructor via e-mail. They answer short essay questions after each lecture rather than taking exams. Previous students have found that this course takes between 45 and 95 hours of work to perform.
