Empowered Relief™ is an evidence-based, single-session pain class that rapidly equips patients with pain management skills. Developed at Stanford University.

Empowered Relief™ was developed by Beth Darnall, PhD, and has been embedded into clinical pathways at Stanford University since 2013. Early positive scientific results led to major NIH funding to further study the benefits and mechanisms of the single-session pain relief class. In August 2021, JAMA Network Open published results for the NIH-funded randomized trial conducted in adults with chronic low back pain (read the full scientific report here). Findings suggest that the single-session class conferred broad and clinically meaningful benefits across multiple outcomes at 3 months post-treatment (pain intensity, pain interference, pain catastrophizing, pain bothersomeness, anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance, and fatigue). Pragmatic comparative effectiveness studies are planned for 2023.

Empowered Relief™ is manualized, research-grade, and ready for immediate implementation into your clinic or research study.

Empowered Relief™ may only be delivered by certified instructors.

Any licensed healthcare clinician may become an Empowered Relief™ certified instructor.

Please note that International clinicians must register 6 weeks in advance to ensure mailed workshop materials are received in time for the workshop.
