This course has been developed from a biomedical to a biopsychosocial sensitisation model of pain. It is based on communicating with patients about pain using drawn pictures, posters, storyboards, animations and the MIRROR book. The whole idea is NOT to explain pain but to use the drawn pictures and other material for patients to recognize her/himself. The recognition usually make the patients start to talk about his/her pain.

The use of cognitive models with a humoristic twist is to help patients better understand  pain physiology and pain psychology and how physical activity works as pain modulation. A fundamental element of the course is to understand pain is a homeostatic emotion and how different psychological factors can either increase or decrease the pain experience.
