Dr. Grinstead's Services Training, Consulting, Webinars & Workshops Dr. Grinstead and his team offer skills training & consulting services, in our office or yours, that demonstrate how to deliver more effective treatment to patients using the APM™ Treatment System. We also offer a variety of workshops and webinars for the public to increase their understanding, empathy and compassion about chronic pain and co-existing problems, as well as to improve their quality of life. Pain Focused Psychotherapy & Relapse Prevention Living with chronic pain is difficult as a result of a complex combination of physical, psychological, and social problems. Pain disorders can be complicated by other serious issues that must be addressed to successfully manage the pain disorder. We offer people who have become depressed and feel a deep sense of hopelessness an opportunity to find that light at the end of the long dark tunnel of pain their life has become. Recovery & Relapse Prevention As anyone living with addiction knows it can be very challenging to ask for help, develop an effective recovery program and then maintain it. To effectively prevent a relapse from occurring, or to stop a relapse once it starts, we offer individual and group programs utilizing a coaching methodology for people who want to recover from a substance or process addiction and the use of self-defeating, self-destructive behaviors.
