The big naked pain and brain campaign is back! I have continued to search high and low in the film industry for references towards pain! More wisdom from Yoda! ‘You must unlearn what you have learned’ and ‘do or do not there is no try’
This is a good example of what clinicians must consider when teaching graded exposure and facilitating engagement with their patients. It is important to educate, be empathetic and encourage to gain engagement for behaviour change. Educating patients to unlearn what they have learned is a step forward towards increasing tolerance levels and activity levels. Do or do not gives you the choice and shows commitment but trying shows apprehension and a lack of belief. Further motivational interviewing and education would be required to help shift the focus towards doing.
