Living with Persistent Pain Group Starting August 31

What is Living With Persistent Pain?

Living With Persistent Pain (LWPP) is a treatment and support group focused on supporting Cascadia clients learning to manage and live with their persistent (chronic) pain. The group follows an evidence-based curriculum and uses an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) framework to help participants limit the control that pain exerts over their lives. Participants will learn about persistent pain; how pain interacts with thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; and practice mindfulness and skill-building in a supportive group environment.
