Empowered Relief™ is a 2-hour class that offers compressed behavioral pain medicine and actionable evidence-based pain management skills training in one efficient visit.
The Empowered Relief™ class was developed by pain psychologist colleague and researcher, Dr. Beth Darnall at Stanford University. Read the latest Natl Institutes of Health press release about the August 2021 study published showing the benefits of this one-session skills-based class for pain management.
Dr. Darnall is a member of the CDC Opioid Workgroup and has published a number of books and important treatment tools.
