We know that when an adolescent and their family understand pain, how it works within the body, it is the beginning of the treatment process.
The purpose of PNE is to create lasting change in beliefs and understanding of pain, address misconceptions about pain, and draw the family's attention to the biological, psychological, and social processes that modulate our pain experiences. Key concepts presented explain the “3 P model of treatment” for families in a concrete way offering explanation of not only what treatment looks like but most importantly why it works.
