Three Day Addiction-Free Pain Management® Competency Certification Training

The Addiction Free Pain Management® (APM) Certification School training is designed to teach the skills needed to successfully work with people with chronic pain and potential or actual addictive disorders. Addictive disorders lead to one set of biopsychosocial problems, and pain disorders lead to another set of problems—this is called the Addiction-Pain Syndrome™. This syndrome produces an outcome where the combined action is greater in total effect than the sum of the effects. Addiction-Free Pain Management® (APM) is a strategic and systematic clinical training process that successfully addresses the Addiction-Pain Syndrome™. Participants will be trained to implement the three core components of APM™: (a) Core Clinical Components; (b) Medication Management Planning; and (c) Nonpharmacological Interventions. The above tasks will be accomplished using a combination of lectures, discussions, demonstrations, and small group experiential exercises.

This training comes with an optional Competency Certification. You can receive this credential by completing the training and submitting an APM™ Certification Portfolio Package within 120 days of the training for an additional $95.00 fee.

Training Objectives

Upon completion of this training the participants will be able to:

  1. Understand and explain the unique needs and obstacles confronting patients who are both chemically dependent and have chronic pain conditions.
  2. Identify the 12 denial patterns and be able to help patients manage their personal denial patterns that lead them to self-defeating behaviors.
  3. Determine whether a patient’s pain condition is physiological psychological/emotional or a combination of both and to develop and appropriate treatment plan accordingly.
  4. Help patients identify, personalize, analyze, and manage the high-risk situations that set them up for ineffective pain management or chemical dependency relapse.
  5. Develop a relapse prevention plan for APM® clients that include high risk situation identification and management, development of a relapse prevention network, and creation of an appropriate recovery plan.
