About.

Empowered Relief™ is an evidence-based, single-session pain class that rapidly equips patients with pain management skills. Developed at Stanford University. 

Empowered Relief™ was developed by pain psychologist Beth Darnall, PhD and has been embedded into clinical care pathways at Stanford University since 2013. Early positive scientific results (Darnall et al, J Pain Res 2014) led to major NIH funding to further study the benefits and mechanisms of the single-session pain relief class. Empowered Relief™ is manualized, research-grade, and ready for immediate implementation into your clinic or research study. Empowered Relief may only be delivered by certified instructors. 

Any healthcare clinician may become an Empowered Relief™ certified instructor.
