One of the central techniques of Pain Reprocessing Therapy is somatic tracking. Somatic tracking is a combination of mindfulness, safety reappraisal, and positive affect induction. The purpose of somatic tracking is to help patients attend to the painful sensation through a distinct lens of safety, thus deactivating the pain signal.

Our Guest Speaker will be Susan Ward. Susan is a seasoned registered social worker with an extensive 30-year career in hospital and community settings, including the last 9 years at The Ottawa Hospital Pain Clinic. Her compassion and holistic approach have made a significant impact in the lives of countless patients living with chronic pain. Committed to making a difference in the lives of those with chronic pain or chronic illness, Susan extends her care to those with chronic pain through a private practice for people living in Ontario. She holds a certification in pain reprocessing therapy- a mind-body approach to chronic pain. She obtained her master’s degree in social work from the University of Ottawa.
