This manual begins with an introduction to chronic, nonmalignant pain treatment and some of the pain theories, as well as approaches to pain management. 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. The book provides case examples and therapist-patient dialogues to 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.
