Psychosocial risk factors, such as fear of movement and pain catastrophizing, have a negative in uence on rehabilitation outcomes and often result in higher levels of pain and disability. Changing Behavior through Physical Therapy (CBPT) and Occupational Therapy (CBOT) is a program designed to improve patient outcomes by addressing speci c psychosocial risk factors. CBPT/CBOT focuses on evidence-based strategies of graded activity, goal setting, problem solving, cognitive restructuring, and relaxation training and is delivered using motivational interviewing. This 1-day highly interactive session will introduce the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy program, a targeted psychosocial approach to rehabilitation. Training will include a mix of presentations, practice, group discussion, case scenarios, demonstration, and short videos. Clinicians and researchers will learn strategies to help patients manage their pain and increase their activity level, replace negative thinking with positive thoughts, nd the right balance between rest and activity, and decrease setbacks by recognizing high-risk situations. This workshop will provide a program for addressing psychosocial risk factors and improving outcomes in patients with acute, sub-acute, and chronic musculoskeletal pain, including those recovering from surgery. 

Learner Objective 1
