Posted on:

The “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain” workshop is a licensed program developed and researched at Stanford University. It follows a standardized format that is proven to help people learn to better manage the symptoms of chronic conditions.

Workshop groups meet once a week for 2½ hours, over six weeks. The workshop teaches skills for living a healthy life.

The workshop is led by two leaders who have taken the Peer Leader Training.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
As a leader, you will have the satisfying task of integrating the contents of the program and learning group facilitation skills that can be transferred to other areas of your life. Most importantly, you will watch people affected by chronic conditions successfully manage their health conditions by using the skills and tools that you have shared with them.
How will the organization benefit?
As a volunteer you will enable us to provide the Living a healthy life with Chronic Pain workshop across the Champlain region. The workshop is led by two leaders who have taken special training. The leaders are volunteers or health care professionals, many of whom have chronic pain themselves.
Volunteer location:
Workshops are offered online as well as in-person across the Champlain region.
