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.


203 pages




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.
