What we're about
This is a local chronic pain support group that focuses on helping each other learn new skills for managing our pain in every day life. Mara is a Facilitator through the American Chronic Pain Association. This support group follows their guidelines and focuses on a Patient's Basic Rights, (https://theacpa.org/Your-Basic-Rights)the 10 Steps From Patient to Person (https://theacpa.org/Ten-Steps), and Coping Skills. (https://theacpa.org/Coping-Skills)
We begin each meeting with the Facilitator briefly discussing a "pain" topic and reviewing the current Coping Calender. We then go onto sharing. The ACPA also prints a Newsletter several times per year. If you are interested, you can read these Chronicles online.
