Join Cory Blickenstaff from The Pain Science and Sensibility Podcast for a weekend to delve into the specific applications of Novel Movements and Edge Work.
The course work will focus on techniques/applications for the upper and lower quarter; as well as concepts from exposure based therapies, graded exposure, graded activity, behavioral experiments, inhibitory learning and motivational interviewing.
About Novel Movement & Edgework:
In this 2 day workshop a framework focusing on the interactive process of care will be presented with overviews and specific applications of current pain science and theory to the clinic. The approach of moving within specific novel contexts, while guiding/facilitating various recovery narratives, will be presented and practiced as well as a specific process that can overlay existing models of care. Specific applications of Novel Movements and Edge Work will be presented for the upper and lower quarter and concepts from exposure based therapies, graded exposure, graded activity, behavioral experiments, inhibitory learning and motivational interviewing will be incorporated.
The course will include ample lecture and lab time throughout the 2 days. Novel Movements and Edge Work will be presented in a framework format to assist with simple implementation into the clinic, while the conceptual overlay allows for broader implementation. The course is intended for clinicians who provide care for or are otherwise interested in movement related presentations.
Upon completion of this course the attendee will be able to:
- Describe the effect sizes of therapeutic interactions as compared to natural course history
- Describe the key foundational difference between Graded Exposure and Graded Activity approaches
- Describe the difference between Graded Exposure and Inhibitory Learning approaches.
- Define Expectancy Violation and provide 3 examples of its use in movement interventions.
- Describe 3 examples of application of stress induced analgesia in movement interventions.
- Define how interoception is used to regulate behavioral responses
- List 3 narrative indicators of progression
- Describe an example of positive and negative influence on Self-Efficacy.
- Describe 5 foundational principles for edge work.
- Delineate a dysfunctional finding from a finding that indicates an opportunity for change.
- Define the 3 categories of edge work
- Describe the 3 conceptual spaces of interaction.
- Define and describe the “Edge markers.”
- Demonstrate 5 specific examples of the use of edge work for the upper and lower quarter.
