The Emotional Skills Workbook is for purchase only for use with the Emotional Skills course, so it is being used under supervision of a NeuroNova Centre-trained facilitator. The course is considered a 3rd level in the Mindfulness-Based Chronic Pain Management training, for alumni of the entry level (level 1) and revision (level 2) courses. The course and workbook were developed in response to the additional needs communicated to us, over many years, by chronic pain sufferers during their experience taking the level 1 and 2 courses. It draws from several source books:
