Chronic pain is the most common long-term health condition in the United States. For the nearly 100 million Americans who struggle with this burden, the substantial risks of prescription opioid treatment have left many searching for safer, more effective alternatives. While multidisciplinary pain treatment programs can help, they are few in number — and few mental health practitioners receive adequate training in pain treatment.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of treating patients with chronic pain, using evidence-based therapies.

Taking a multidisciplinary approach that includes cognitive–behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and chronic pain self-management, Darnall shows mental health professionals how to utilize mindfulness interventions, hypnosis, and biofeedback, and also address comorbid problems such as depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

The book also includes compelling case studies and resources for clinical and patient training.
