If you live in Longford or Westmeath and are living with chronic migraine or New Daily Persistent Headache, this course may be for you.
Taking place one night a week for three weeks, this course will focus on the emotional impact of living with a chronic condition with an aim to empower participants with self-management tools and pain-management strategies.
The contents of the course include:
- Mapping your migraine journey
- Primary and secondary suffering
- Communicating pain
- Thought patterns and pain
- Pain reduction methods
- Pacing as a tool
- Acceptance and self-compassion
- Exploring new approaches
Due to the nature of the course, we would kindly ask you to consider your willingness/readiness to address the emotional impact of living with a chronic condition. While this course is primarily for promoting self-management techniques, it does highlight the more difficult aspects of living with chronic pain and therefore a capacity to engage with these topics is required.
The course will be delivered through Zoom. Every Tuesday before the course evening, we will send out the course content and appendices that will be covered in the course for you to print or download.
To participate in this course, the course’s sutability to you must be assessed and you must commit to the full three evenings that the course is run on. To apply for a place please email email@example.com. You will be sent an assessment form which you must complete and return to qualify for a place.
