Dr. Howard Schubiner is a pain physician, researcher, author, and clinician educator on the biopsychosocial approach to chronic pain and other stress related disorders. He will teach how to accurately differentiate neural circuit disorders (learned pain, or central sensitization, now also called nociplastic pain) from structural disorders (nociceptive pain) and nerve damage (neuropathic pain), and provide evidence-based interventions for the former.

Dr. Schubiner’s work was recently featured in the Washington Post. He and his team recently published a double blind study on psychological treatment for back pain

Dr. Schubiner has written Unlearn Your Pain, a patient self-help manual for chronic pain sufferers and co-authored Hidden From View with Dalhousie University’s Dr. Allan Abbass. He is a co-founder of the Psychophysiologic Disorders Assocation (PPDA), a US charity committed to educating clinicians and the public on functional disorders.

Jessica Shanian, Executive Director of PPDA and a former professional dancer who had an occupational back injury, will share a bit of her story with the WCB system in the US and her remarkable recovery.

All clinicians providing services for WCB are welcome to attend this free virtual event.
