Pain is the most common symptom bringing a patient to a physician's attention. Physicians training in pain medicine may originate from different disciplines and approach the field with varying backgrounds and experience. This book captures the theory and evidence-based practice of behavioral, psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacological treatments in modern pain medicine. The book's contributors span the fields of psychiatry, psychology, anesthesia, neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and nursing. Thus the structure and content of the book convey the interdisciplinary approach that is the current standard for the successful practice of pain management. The book is designed to be used as a text for training fellowships in pain medicine, as well as graduate courses in psychology, nursing, and other health professions.

'Tables and figures throughout the book enhance its value as a reference for any clinician, and it is reasonably priced for a large and comprehensive review of the area. This volume would be my choice to utilize as a text for a seminar on pain. Drs Ebert and Kerns have done our profession a great service by developing such a textbook ...' Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
