Easy⁠, Relaxed⁠, Flexible⁠

What is unique to Winter School?

Winter School is the full NOI Explain Pain course delivered over eight weeks, with two-hour live sessions each week and extensive clinical mentoring; this new and extended format has been a revelation for deep understanding and flexible clinical application of the Explain Pain approach.

Recorded sessions so you can join live, catch up later or watch again on replay.

Watch or listen any time, any place, any where.


By the end of this course participants will have:

  1. Reconceptualised pain and stress based on neuroimmunology, modern pain sciences and bioplasticity of homeostatic systems
  2. Constructed a conceptual change framework to deliver individual and group educational therapy
  3. Gained an understanding of the growing evidence for Explain Pain and recognise opportunities to integrate Explain Pain with other biopsychosocial evidence based strategies.

The course will be live and delivered via Zoom

Class sizes are kept small to maximise interaction and time for questions

NOI’s usual high quality

Comprehensive teaching materials will be provided

In a world experiencing an epidemic of chronic pain and increasing evidence of the failure of synthetic drugs, simple but extremely powerful educational tools can effectively target the natural pain treatment systems within us all.

Knowledge is power. In the new series of Explain Pain courses delivered by NOI instructors around the world, contemporary pain sciences are made accessible and understandable for all.

We know more about pain in the last twenty years than in the thousand years before and it’s all providing answers to “why do I hurt the way I do” and “what can I do about it”. The knowledge is applicable to young and old, from back pain to hemiplegia and general aching to the complexities of phantom pain and complex regional pain syndrome.

Explain Pain works to reduce catastrophisation and negative pain beliefs and when combined with active treatment, reduces pain and enhances return to work and play. Explain Pain has no side effects, is available around the clock, and you can share the knowledge and strategies with others.

Don’t miss this opportunity. NOI Explain Pain courses are fun, intellectually stimulating, based on evidence,
