Pain Awareness Month

September is Pain Awareness Month, and like other organizations and publishers, APA Books hopes to raise awareness about pain, pain management, and the psychology of pain. Over 100 million Americans suffer from some form of chronic pain. Chronic pain can be severe if it is the result of serious injury or disease; however, some causes can be difficult for medical professionals to identify. Even less well-understood is the psychology of pain—how pain is experienced by individuals, and the consequences of chronic pain on our mental health and well-being.

In Psychological Treatments for Patients with Chronic Pain, Dr. Beth Darnall sheds light on this important topic.  Her book provides a brief, but comprehensive overview of treating patients with chronic pain using evidence-based therapies.  Darnall explains how mental health professionals can use mindfulness interventions, hypnosis, and biofeedback to address chronic pain issues and comorbid problems such as depression, anxiety, and insomnia.
