PAIN MANAGEMENT SUPPORT GROUP OFFERED AT WINTHROP
Individuals dealing with chronic and intermittent pain are invited to join Winthrop-University Hospital’s free support group beginning May 12th at 10:00 AM. Sessions will be held for 10 consecutive Thursdays from May 12th through July 14th at the Winthrop Wellness Pavilion, 1300 Franklin Avenue, Suite ML-5 in Garden City.
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), research has shown that many people with chronic pain can be helped if they understand all the causes of pain and the many and varied steps that can taken to undo what chronic pain has done. During group meetings, participants will have the opportunity to express and share their feelings, thoughts, attitudes, fears, concerns, etc. Moreover, an emphasis will be placed on developing attitudes and behaviors for coping with pain.
The group is conducted in affiliation with Winthrop’s Pain Management Center under the direction of Edward S. Rubin, MD. Sessions are led by Fredric Corb, PhD, a licensed and certified clinical psychologist with almost 35 years of experience in New York City and Nassau and Suffolk counties.
Sessions are free, but registration is required. For further information or to register, please call 1-866-WINTHROP. Please note that individuals interested in the group after the start date of March 10th are welcome.
