This updated and expanded volume is a practical guide for clinicians to help their clients manage and alleviate problems associated with chronic pain. Based on the Gate Control Model, the manual provides detailed and structured information to enable the cognitive-behavioral-oriented clinician to conduct a time-limited, therapist-guided self-management program. The edition places an emphasis on the cognitive components of treatment, including chapters on the "new" psychology of pain, memory of pain, the overprediction of pain, pain-related cognitions, and the measurement of pain.

"...newly revised and updated, providing a practical guide to help clients manage and alleviate problems associated with chronic pain...emphasizes the cognitive components of treatment."
