The best of its kind, but do not pay exorbitant prices! March 17 2005
By Andrew J. Rózsa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Chronic Pain Control Workbook is by far the best of its kind. It truly will walk a chronic pain sufferer through a step-by-step program that, if followed consistently, WILL improve the quality of the chronic sufferer's life. I have used it successfully with thousands of patients. HOWEVER, the book is now out-of-print (for some unfathomable reason that nether the publisher nor the authors care to explain) and I am seeing extreme price gouging! Don't fall for it and do not pay exorbitant prices for a book that's listed at $17.95. If you can't find a used one for a reasonable price, "The Relaxation & Stress Reduction Workbook (2000, 5th edition, also by New Harbinger Publications) by M. Davis, Elizabeth Eshelman, and Matthew McKay - ISBN: 1572242140 covers almost all the topics just as well as the Pain Control Workbook does. What's missing are the chapters on medications, theories of pain, and vocational issues, but these are covered quite well elsewhere. The Relax workbook is available for list price of $19.95, but I have seen it used for as little as $10. A MUCH saner way to go!

A must for anyone working on chronic pain. Dec 5 2007
By M. C. Loftin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have used this book for nine years in working with individuals with chronic pain. It is skills-based, and it covers most of the important aspects of psychological treatment of pain. If you cannot get this book, try 10 Simple Solutions to Chronic Pain in addition to The Relaxation & Stress Reduction Workbook.

I bought this book before checking the publication date. Some of the info is relavent, but most of it misses the mark with the current epidemic of pain med addiction.

You Can Learn to Control your Pain May 9 2010
By LAUNA STOUT- Children'sBooks.BellaOnline - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You may have bought this book because you have chronic pain or know someone who does. Or like me, bought it as a text book. I was not sure what the book would be like, but I feel that it will be very helpful as a tool to help one assess their particular situation and then learn coping measures for managing their chronic pain. This book can help by providing information about the physical management of pain, including medical interventions. It also discusses the psychological management of pain, and provides information on support groups. It covers how pain affects and changes your life, and gives some specific pain management information. Goals for someone who is seeking help and has chronic pain is for them to get information, decrease their pain level, and work toward full or partial function. This book can help.
