Default CIRPD Utilizing Science, Technology and the Arts to Transform Pain

I listened to this lecture yesterday by Diane Gromala PhD. A member of the Transforming Pain Research group Simon Fraser University in Surrey, BC.
As far as presentation quality I think there is quite a bit of room for improvment, but Diane presents some very interesting concepts for treating pain.

A sufferer herself for 25 years she address some legitimate points that may be helpful with the use of Robotics, Virtual Reality, and Social Media.

She mentions in the presentation that Mindfulness Meditation has tons of research supporting how effective it is with Pain. I haven't looked exhaustively but I didn't think there was that much.

Anyway, this was interesting and worth my time reviewing it.

There is quite a bit from the Jon Kabat-Zinn "school".

Diane Gromala and Neil Pearson were two of three keynote speakers at the BC pain Summit in June. I believe pain BC has them archived. I am very thankful the CIRPD and Pain BC are as active as they are right now and I have been enjoying the presentations they have offered.

NOI Group has in interesting idea with their walking video and I believe Diane Gromala talks about snow world (U Washington) which I think has tremendous potential applications in neuroplasticity and pain.

I've known of Jon for awhile now. Is there anyone else producing work in this field?

Why the "scare" quotes?

I saw Jon speak in a Yoga video a few years back and he struck me as evangelical about it. I have to admit I haven't been motivated to research him more since then.

I know the last CIRPD talk basically focused around his 2 books.

Karen, I agree completely. I am meeting with Neil in a few weeks when he is in the area. I also found what Diane G had to say to be very good.

What is it with BC now?

Hi Byron,
Those weren't meant to be scare quotes - sorry.. I wanted to set off the word as being my interpretation of his set of research and teaching. Maybe I should have used asterisks, like this; *school(?)*

All I know about him is from his online videos. I know he doesn't do peace/love/light/energy/cheery/butterflies&rainbows stuff, nor does he do I'm so guru-wizardy-and-powerful-you-will-become-mesmerized-by-my-teachings either. He talks plain sense. At least to my ear.

Byron,

You might be interested in the following essay. In fact, you may have already read given your interests. Anyway, check out Social Media Is The New Authentic.

Hi Jon,

No I hadn't seen that site or article. I liked it very much. Thank you!

Diane,

I really liked Taylor's article. Is there a bunch of these PT Yoga Therapists around? I want to talk to Neil (I am sitting with him in Hamilton in a few weeks) about what exactly the scope of a Yoga Therapist would be. I have seen so much variety (not all of it good) that I don't know if the term means anything

I think there is some kind of certification process, but I have no idea what is entailed or what body of knowledge is tested..

I don't think you were being a smart alec , there is an organization and several teachers who are working at bring training in that field up. I was talking a little more rhetorically.
