"Beyond Pain is a must for any practitioner looking to move deeper into pain science.   The course helps identify patients who will respond to new evidence based therapies that are not what is traditionally thought or taught.

About the Course

This live virtual course is designed to help you change your paradigm and learn how to use your current skills in a new way to help cure people of acute and chronic symptoms.

You'll learn how to then synthesize modern pain science and therapeutic alliance skills with novel psychological strategies that are fully accessible to a range of clinicians.

Please bring a personal case example or one from your clinic to share. We'll have plenty of Clinical Skill practice, Case Examples, and Troubleshooting of attendee cases in groups during the course.

Pre Reading

If you haven't already done so, please familiarize yourself with the books "Explain Pain" by the NOI group and "Unlearn Your Pain" by Howard Schubiner before the course.


This value packed intensive course has the following objectives:

  • Understand the paradigm shift in our profession and in the scope of pain science.
  • Learn modern neurophysiology of pain from a medical and psychological perspective.
  • Explore the concept of therapeutic alliance in healing professions.
  • Build fear reductions strategies into your psycho-education and manual interventions.
  • Learn pain reprocessing strategies and integrate them with your other modalities.
  • Integrate emotional processing strategies into your clinical practice.

BONUS: Post Training Mentoring

Included in the cost of training, you'll have an opportunity to meet with Charlie Merrill on a monthly hour long group consult call for 6 sessions total after the training. These consults are ongoing and you may continue to join the consult group thereafter for a small monthly fee.  As PTs and other therapists, we're used to the old "train and hope" model where we learn for a weekend and then assume we'll retain everything and be able to apply it well. We feel consult after any training is critical for all attendees. Implementation science shows that a clinicians ability to apply any model of treatment well depends on consult over time. This work is novel and unique and so requires some ongoing learning and mentoring to really do well. We think you'll find this opportunity very rich and rewarding.

What Our Students Are Saying...

"I’ve taken Howard and Charlie’s course twice.  It awakened the part in me that always wanted to be excited about going to work everyday.  Most of my patients have persistent symptoms of one variety or another. Since the class, I feel I am truly helping many of these patients get to the real “root” of their pain. One of the many great parts of the course is actually when it’s over! Why? Howard and Charlie truly want you to contact them if you ever have a question. Charlie also offers a monthly zoom group consultation for anyone who’d like to participate. I can’t thank them enough for their generosity and honesty!" 

- Joe Belanger, DPT

"Taking this course with Charlie and Howard not only changed my interaction with every single patient, but also with myself. This course helped me get over a personal pain hump from years of chronic pain and empowered me with actionable tools to guide others to do the same. I truly believe the information in this course is vital to treating your patients with the best, most effective care possible. I wish my PTs, doctors, acupuncturists, and every other healthcare provider from my past had taken this course. It would have saved me from … well … a lot of pain!"

- Tara Dirocco, DPT Student
