…is the title of a film about curing chronic pain caused by medically unexplained symptoms like: restless leg syndrome, fibromyalgia, repetitive strain injury (RSI), tinnitus, irritable bowel syndrome. See the trailer of this film: https://www.thismighthurtfilm.com
The film is about a science-based program, the Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy (EAET). EAET sees a relationship between emotions and chronic pain. This program helps patients in 5 steps to unlearn their brains to reduce or even eliminate the chronic pain. One of the steps is doing emotional processing.
The founder and director of this program, Dr. Howard Schubiner from Providence Park Hospital, Southfield, Michigan, USA, did several surveys about the efficacy of EAET. See here this Review: ‘Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy for Chronic Pain: Rationale, Principles and Techniques, Evidence, and Critical’.

In this survey the Core Science Foundation explored the pro’s and the cons of online therapy in relation to Core Energetics (CE); a body orientated psychotherapeutic approach with specific concepts like Mask, Lower Self and Higher Self. The Corona pandemic and the social (physical) distancing that comes with it, has majorly impacted Core practitioners in their approach, which normally contains elements of physical closeness or physical contact.
Core practitioners were asked to fill out a short questionnaire, that surveyed their findings and experiences with giving online sessions, and they were asked to formulate recommendations based on their experiences. According to the outcome of this survey, Core practitioners manage to move along with the societal measures. They are very willing to keep supporting their clients in this time where all of us must cope with fear, loneliness and the big “not-knowing”. Core practitioners intend to support their clients in accepting feelings, releasing them, helping them staying connected with reality and taking health(y) responsibility.
