This manual begins with an introduction to the basic "how-to's" of chronic, nonmalignant pain treatment and some of the theories, as well as approaches to pain management with a focus on the cognitive model. The core of the book delineates the application of Beck's cognitive therapy assessment and intervention strategies with this client population, and offers an easy-to-follow structured approach. Supported by a strong research base to confirm its efficacy, case examples and therapist-patient dialogues demonstrate cognitive therapy in action and illustrate ways to improve collaborative efforts between practitioners and patients. Mental health professionals working in hospital settings, community and university mental health centers, and private practice settings will find this directive, time-limited approach an invaluable addition to their treatment options for chronic pain management, if not the treatment of choice.
