9780931092527: Psychological Methods of Pain Control: Basic Science and Clinical Perspectives (Progress in Pain Research and Management, Volume 29)

Remarkable progress has been made in understanding both the psychological factors that influence pain, including attention, emotions and expectation, and psychological methods of pain control, such as hypnosis. This progress has several sources, including improved designs of both experimental and clinical studies and the interface of brain imaging with thoughtful questions. We have learned that pain can be powerfully influenced by addressing factors that pertain to the patients' perception of treatments. This book explains fundamental principles underlying the psychological control of pain. Understanding these principles fulfills an important need for those seeking a scientific understanding of pain control, as well as for those who treat pain patients.

Review:

This is another in the series of excellent books from IASP Press that consistently produces current and high quality texts. It is clearly written and easy to read. I can recommend it unreservedly. --K. H. Simpson in British Journal of Anaesthesia, Vol. 94, No. 1, Jan 2005

...a valuable resource that would be useful to those looking for excellent integration of imaging and those who wish to learn about the integration of neuroscience and psychological mechanisms, or about placebo or hypnosis in pain research. --Patrick McGrath in Journal of the Canadian Pain Society, Vol. 9, No. 4 Winter 2004

I highly recommend this book as a resource for readers who wish to better understand the underpinning of psychologically based approaches to pain control and to use science to make such interventions more respectable. --David R. Patterson in APS Bulletin, Summer 2005
