FREE CRPS Educational Workshop for Mental Health Clinicians
Mon, May 8, 2017, 6:15 PM – 7:45 PM PDT
This 1.5 hour workshop is for registered clinical counsellors or other mental health clinicians who are interested in learning more about the extremely painful neuropathic pain condition known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (or formerly Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy). CRPS patients, who are looking to access counselling services in our community, are often concerned that therapists will not have any knowledge of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome or understand the complex nature of how this disease can present for sufferers.
Co-founders of CRPS Hope & Awareness Foundation, Kate and Jen, will provide an overview of Complex Regional pain syndrome including definition, signs & symptoms, effects, occurrence, higher risk populations, etc.
Co-presenter, Joan Campbell, is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with many years of experience and training in multiple modalities. She is also the mother of one of the co-founders (Kate) and as such, she has witnessed the devastating effects of this disease. She will present information about the implications for practice.
Resources such as brochures, posters and articles will be available. Spaces are extremely limited and although the event is free, we request that you RSVP to hold your seat. Additional workshops may be offered based on need.

Attendees will be given the opportunity to add their name to a list of practioners who attended the educational workshop series and this list will be available to CRPS sufferers who are looking to access services in the community.
