The poster illustrates the journey a person in pain can
take from the Pain Hell to becoming
a self-manager. The border of the poster contains the 4
components of the program: relaxation,
exercise, attitude and occupation.
Cartoon characters illustrate the changing relationship
the person has with their pain as they journey along the
Healing Highway. The
Door of Willingness is a turning point, when, the
person in pain becomes willing to change, and has developed
curiosity about the journey ahead. Beyond the "Door
of Willingness" the pain is transformed from something
representing danger and a catastrophe, to an opportunity.
At the end of the "Healing Highway" the Self-Manager
stands on the rainbow with her clipboard, representing organisation,
and wand, representing her own healing potential.
