Pain Management Support Group
Anne Denner, LCSW is starting a ten week pain management support group. Adults who are experiencing chronic pain are welcome to join the Pain Management Support Group. There will be opportunities to connect with others and receive support in understanding and managing your pain. The group is weekly. A free consultation is offered to determine if this group is a good match for you.
Chronic pain is a problem many people experience at some point in their lives. It can negatively impact a person's ability to work, to participate fully in relationships with partners, family and friends. Over time, chronic pain can take away a person's ability to engage in some of the basic activities and pleasures of living, in some cases, causing isolation and feelings of hopelessness, anger or depression. Studies in the field of pain managment show that pepple who attend a support group and learn new skills and startegies to cope with pain are less negatively impacted by pain.
