Summary "This book provides a high-level overview of pain psychology and evidence-based psychological treatment for pain. The book also includes a clinical tool kit of resources and a road map for further learning about pain psychology. Chronic pain is one of the largest health problems worldwide and frequently co-occurs with various psychological symptoms and disorders. Mental health professionals must have a foundational understanding about pain and the role of psychology in the onset, experience, and maintenance of pain and how evidence-based psychological treatments can be used to treat chronic pain and lessen its burdens. The book comprises of 12 chapters. Chapters one through five discusses the nature of pain and comorbid effects, such as depression and anxiety, and provides an overview of the common and distinct components in psychological treatments for pain. Chapters six and seven cover psychobehavioral treatments for chronic pain: cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction, mindfulness meditation, hypnosis, biofeedback, and chronic pain self-management. Chapter eight explores the relationship between sleep disorders and chronic pain. Chapter nine provides detail on opioids. Chapter ten discusses chronic pain in special populations such as older adults, minorities, and individuals with current substance use or current or historical substance use disorder. Chapter eleven describes the impact of chronic pain on social factors and intimacy. The concluding chapter summarizes the previous chapters and presents future directions for chronic pain management. Each chapter also contains a bulleted summary of key points and case vignettes that illustrate key concepts and treatment approaches."--Preface.
