About this item

This authoritative handbook--now significantly revised with more than 50% new material--introduces practitioners and students to the state of the art in psychological interventions for managing pain. Leading experts review the most effective treatment approaches for enhancing patients' coping and self-efficacy and reducing pain-related disability, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, biofeedback, clinical hypnosis, group therapy, and more. Strategies for integrating psychosocial and medical treatments for specific populations are described, with chapters on back pain, headache, cancer, and other prevalent chronic pain disorders. Attention is given to customizing intervention for individual patients, maximizing treatment adherence, and preventing overuse of opioids and other medications.
