The Pain Survival Guide: How to Reclaim Your Life.
The pain survival guide; how to reclaim your life.
Turk, Dennis W. and Frits Winter.
American Psychological Assn.
Rather than reinforcing the common message to patients to learn to live with pain, pain researchers/clinicians Turk (U. of Washington) and Winter (the Netherlands) echo Charlie Brown's advice in the Peanuts comic strip: "Don't let your body push you around!" They present a pain management program of activities and rational (as in rational emotive therapy) thinking. Research supporting their approach is listed by condition.
