4th Global Conference
Making Sense of: Pain
Thursday 9th May – Saturday 11th May 2013
Prague, Czech Republic
Call for Presentations:
What is pain? What is the meaning of pain? How can we attempt to make sense of it—and should we?
Pain is a complex multi-layered, multi-leveled phenomenon. Standard definitions of pain view it primarily in physical terms as being a life-preserving response to negative stimuli in sentient beings. It is something that happens to and/or in parts of the body. It is described in terms of physical qualities, as an object to be observed, assessed, analysed, managed, overcome and/or eliminated.
