Many believe that there is “no health without mental health”. Chiropractors see how psychological barriers can restrict progress in care. To empower chiropractors to recognize when these may be occurring and refer when needed to help bring down those barriers, the OCA has partnered with an authority on mental health care – CAMH. In collaboration with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), we will host a two-day Cognitive Behaviour Therapy workshop. The workshop is facilitated by CAMH psychologist, Dr. Hester Dunlap, Clinic Head in the Work, Stress and Health program. A letter of Training Completion for participants will be available from CAMH.

Learning Objectives

1. Overview of the CBT model
2. Understanding how the CBT model relates to chronic pain, health behaviors, and mental health issues
3. How and when to refer for CBT treatment.
