Psychosocial risk factors, such as fear of movement and pain catastrophizing, have a negative influence on rehabilitation outcomes and often result in higher levels of pain and disability. Changing Behavior through Physical Therapy (CBPT) is a program designed to improve patient outcomes by addressing specific psychosocial risk factors. CBPT focuses on evidence-based cognitive-behavioral strategies of graded activity, goal setting, problem solving, cognitive restructuring, and relaxation training and is delivered using motivational interviewing. In this session, clinicians and researchers will learn strategies to help patients manage their pain and increase their activity level, replace negative thinking with positive thoughts, find 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, subacute, and chronic musculoskeletal pain, including those recovering from surgery.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Describe a targeted approach to rehabilitation for patients at risk for poor rehabilitation outcomes.

2. Identify successful strategies for addressing specific psychosocial risk factors and improving pain, disability, and physical activity.

3. Demonstrate evidence-based cognitive and behavioral strategies that can be integrated into clinical care.

4. Demonstrate motivational interviewing skills that can be used to facilitate behavior change within a clinical setting.
