This workshop aims to discuss the importance of a multimodal approach in the treatment of patients diagnosed with chronic pelvic pain syndrome.
There is emphasis on a multimodal approach while recognizing the unitary psycho-physiologic nature of both illness and healing

Discussion of neuromodulation and neuroplasticity in the treatment of chronic pelvic pain will be undertaken

Specific consideration will be given not only the symptoms as guidelines to treatment but also the patient as a whole including the environment he or she is living and functioning.

Another talking point involves the degree of patient willingness to participate in self –help approaches to gain self-empowerment and self-care.
