Dr. Walker will be presenting "The Biopsychosocial Model of Treating Chronic Pain: Opioids Seldom Work" at the American Counseling Association 2020 Conference & Expo in San Diego, CA next spring. The Conference dates are April 16-19, 2020.
In April 2019, Dr. Walker and Ms. Sizemore published an article, “Effort Testing in Forensic Vocational Assessment,” in The Rehabilitation Professional, Vol. 27, Issue 1, p 49-54.
