Chronic Pain – Self-Management Course
The Center at Medfield will be hosting a free six-week program on chronic pain self-management, a participant education program developed by Stanford University. The class is for adults living with and/or caring for someone with chronic pain. The sessions are geared to help manage and educate participants and are led by professionals with chronic pain themselves. Subjects covered in the sessions include:
-Techniques to deal with problems such as fatigue, frustration, pain and isolation -Appropriate use of medications -How to communicate effectively with family, friends and medical professionals -Nutrition tips and advice -Decision making -How to evaluate new treatments
The program meets once a week on Fridays – May 5, 12, 19, 26 & June 2, 9 from 9:00 to 12:00 pm. Hosted at: The Center at Medfield – One Ice House Road – Medfield, MA 02052. Each participant will also receive a companion book, “Living a Healthy Life With Chronic Pain”, accompanied with a “Moving Easy” CD. Classes are free. Advance registration is required. For more information or to register, call the Center at 508-359-3665.
No matter how much you know, or don’t know, about music, painting, sculpture, and dance, you’ll find this four-week course eye-opening and fun. “This workshop, which aims to demystify different types of art, is the total opposite of stuffy,” says creator Jerry Cianciolo. “No lecturing, no obscure details, just people responding honestly to what they see and hear.” As in Minds in Motion, the highly popular workshop Jerry leads at the Center, participants will be continually challenged to voice their opinions, and their likes and dislikes about various forms of art. Sessions run May 10, 17, 24 and 31 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Class cost is $10.
Tickets are available for a EMCATOS concert on May 6 at 2:30 p.m. at Babson College. Phil comes from the famous Tower Ballroom in Blackpool, England. His concerts on the Babson Wurlitzer Theatre Organ are always high energy and tons of fun. The tickets are $5; thanks to a very generous sponsor who has subsidized the amount. An easy and wonderful afternoon! Please see Roberta if interested.
