Pain and discomfort has a profound effect on our lives, yet there has been, to date, very limited information on the actual relationship between pain and behavior. This 6 hour presentation will summarize current research into the causes of pain and behavior, the various treatment methods of the past, and new, innovative and integrated approaches. Participants will be presented with ideas for assessment, innovative program development and tracking of pain-related behavior.


Take the Gladstone exit off of I-205 then head west on 82nd Ave. Turn right on Oatfield Road, then right on Webster Road, then right on Cason Road. When you turn from Webster on to Cason Road, you will see several signs for Somerset. The first is Somerset Lodge, pass that one. The second is Somerset Assisted Living. There are two entrances to Somerset Assisted Living. Go past the main entrance. The second entrance doesn’t have much signage but that is the one you want. The training room is on the lower level of the building and a small sign out front says ‘Gladstone Enrichment Center.’

[Note: We can park on the street (Cason Road) or in any open parking spots in the back parking lot.  Please avoid parking in the main entrance parking lot. It is reserved for Somerset residents and their guests.]
