Are you a recreational therapist who provides pain management?
I work at a psychiatric hospital. The recreational therapists are in charge of pain management assessments and interventions.
Traci Stein, Ph.D., MPH is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Adjunct professor at Teachers College, Columbia University.
Traci is also the author of the 2015 book, The Everything Guide To Integrative Pain Management: Conventional and Alternative Therapies for Managing Pain – Discover New Treatments, Regulate … Stress, and Nurture Your Body and Mind.
I think RTs who provide pain management interventions would enjoy this book.
