What is the cost of the Embodia exercises?
You will receive all of the exercise resources to give to your patients for FREE. However, most of the exercises are audio and video-based, so you will have to use a large file transfer system in order to send them to your patients. We have uploaded them into PowerPoint format so they take up a little less space, but they are still big files.
The easier, long-term solution is to use the Embodia app. It does require that you sign up with them to assign exercises to your patients. The cost of the monthly app fee is $11.25 for CPA members, so it is very cost-effective. It is free for patients to use the app, and patients absolutely love it. You can try it for free by contacting Maggie (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have never tried it before.
Upon the completion of both of these courses, you will receive a 50% off coupon code so that the one-time fee for the audio-video packages will cost:
• $99 for Exercise Reframed
• $49 for Biopsychosocial Reframed
Here is the Embodia link for each package so that you can see what is included in these packages and what types of exercise you will be learning:
I want to attend this course, but a couple of the session dates don’t work for me, am I still able to take this course?
We will allow one missed session, and will provide the recording for that session.
My only hesitation is the course title... I'm not sure I want to go to a formulaic way of treating patients and the title makes me think that by selecting a questionnaire that we could profile patients into categories?
Persistent pain has to be individualized since no two patients are the same. That is why using distress questionnaires are so important. It is not that everyone needs pain education, or yoga or meditation; however, if we "profile" their sensitivity using objective screening questionnaires we can target their nervous system more specifically to desensitize them before we start to move functionally towards recovery. It is about treating the pain system, not pain management.
For example, patients who are catastrophizing really need to understand the pain and the pain system. People who are fearful need to use fear ladders and behavior experiments. People who are ruminating, need to practice mindfulness meditation.

What is a “live-online course”? Is this course Pre-recorded?
Live-online means that the instructor is teaching their class in real-time - as if they were in a classroom or teaching center. This gives the student the ability to ask questions, interact with other students, and allows for increased learning. This is not a canned or pre-recorded course. We use the interactive teaching platform Zoom to deliver this content.
Why are you delivering courses in a live-online format rather than a classroom?
Using a live, virtual classroom decreases the travel time and costs for students and instructors helping them save money, effort, and valuable time. Using a virtual classroom saves money for us as well, and helps us keep these courses cost-effective. The same valuable content from our instructors, but easily accessible and affordable for you!
How many people can take each live-online course?
The class size is capped at 24 students per course to ensure everyone gets the attention they need and their learning goals are met. Small class sizes means better interaction, better knowledge retention and better clinical outcomes.
Why are most of the courses two-hour sessions over several weeks?
Only 10% of new material is retained after a weekend course, and we only use a fraction of this new knowledge in clinical practice. By breaking the material into smaller chunks spread over several weeks, it allows participants to thoroughly learn and apply concepts in real-time in their clinical practice. This translates into a much better use of your time, resources, enhances your learning and increases the changes to your clinical practice. Plus, you keep your weekends free, BONUS!
Will I receive a certificate or Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for Reframe Rehab courses?
If you attend all but one session of the live-online course, you will receive a certificate. Reframe Rehab has not applied for CEUs in any country at this time.
Can I miss a class or do I need to attend all of the classes in order to receive my certificate?
To receive a certificate for course participation, it is allowable to miss one class in the posted class schedule on Reframe Rehab. If you miss more than one class, you will be ineligible for a class certificate. No refunds will be given for missed classes.
Will the classes be recorded so I can view them later?
No. This is a live, online class and they will not be recorded for viewing later; this is the same as in-person classes.
Will I receive course materials or resources?
Most instructors will send out their course slides and clinical resources before the course. This is left up to the discretion of the individual instructors.
What technology do I need to attend a Reframe Rehab course?
You will need an electronic device (Ipad, Tablet, Phone, Computer/laptop) that has access to the internet and preferably a camera of some kind. A camera is important so the instructor and classmates can see your face and you can interact better with the class. Zoom is the platform used for these live, online courses.
What is your cancellation/refund policy?
Cancellations that are made 15 days or more in advance of the class start date, will receive a 100% refund by original payment method minus 10% administration fees.
Cancellations made within 14 days or less of the event will receive a credit towards the same course to be taken within one calendar year. No refunds will be issued in this time period.
