From the Publisher
"This is an authoritative text on the assessment of both medical and psychological aspects of chronic pain patients....It is a state of the art publication with well referenced chapters covering many aspects of the measurement of pain and the assessment of chronic pain patients. It is an important contribution to the literature that is sure to set the pace for many years to come." --John D. Loeser, M.D.
"Two masters of the field have assembled the best available team. Essential reading for those who wish to consider the critical problem of pain as a condition which one person describes to another." --Professor P.D. Wall, FRS, DM, FRCP
"The book will appeal to psychiatrists interested in chronic pain, but especially to those involved in multidisciplinary research in pain or other "somatic" disorders...The reader is helped to negotiate a path through the growing forest of assessment instruments...For the consultation-liason psychiatrist committed to a true biopsychosocial model, comprehensive pain assessment, as found in this book, is an impressive example of its application...The psychiatric reader will be impressed with the increasing openness of the "medical" writers to the importance of psychological factors in the assessment of pain..." --R. Alec Ramsay, M.D. in General Hospital Psychiatry
