This Might Hurt is a documentary that opens the conversation about how we treat pain in our country by highlighting an emerging treatment, Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy (EAET). Featured on National Public Radio, EAET has shown to be effective in a large randomized controlled trial and recommended as a “pain management best practice” by the National Institute of Health’s task force to combat the opioid epidemic.
Directed by Kent Bassett and Marion Cunningham, This Might Hurt follows a group of patients through their EAET treatment with Dr. Howard Schubiner. Dr. Schubiner has been treating chronic pain for nearly two decades and is a leading researcher in the field of pain medicine.
The film will be followed by a virtual panel discussion which will include Dr. Howard Schubiner, other clinicians and patient advocates from the Pacific Northwest region.
