Thursday April 18th will feature The Pain of Trauma, The Trauma of Pain: Psychological Trauma Has Physical Consequences

More than the pharmaceutical companies, it is the way western medicine teaches us to think about pain that has fostered overprescribing of opioid. Our concept of pain has had other consequences, it has led us to assume that the recent increase in overdose deaths is the consequence of an epidemic of addiction. But our nation’s response, which should work if we are in fact dealing with a crisis of addiction, has backfired: reducing prescription opioid and introducing addiction resources has not stemmed the crisis. Just the opposite, CDC statistics show that the crisis has deepened. We must be missing something. Perhaps the way we view pain has not only led us into an overprescribing disaster, perhaps it is preventing us from finding the way out.  This presentation will assist with illuminating a way out.
