10-Footsteps Training

The Live Well With Pain 10 Footsteps is an online programme for developing confidence in pain self-management.

Pain scientists have shown that a biopsychosocial approach is more effective in managing chronic pain than the traditional medical model.

This is why Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), with its ‘five areas’ model of person-centred care, is increasingly seen as a useful framework for encouraging the development of self-management skills.

Ten Footsteps to Living Well with Pain builds on this five areas model, encouraging people to see how the different dimensions of their life have all been impacted by their pain – and how, in turn, making changes in their life can have a positive effect on how they experience their pain.
