Handbook of Psychosocial Interventions for Chronic Pain provides a cutting-edge and comprehensive review of interventions for chronic pain grounded in biopsychosocial frameworks.

Each chapter gives readers the opportunity to solidify their knowledge of major approaches to chronic pain in an accessible format. Reflecting national efforts to reduce prescriptions for pain medications and increase access to interdisciplinary treatment approaches, the book also considers a wide range of person-level variables such as age, cultural factors, and comorbid mental health conditions.

In this book, mental health and allied health professionals will find the tools they need to understand the real-world delivery of chronic pain treatments in a wide variety of settings.

The Handbook of Psychosocial Interventions for Chronic Pain must be part of the collection of any psychologist or other behavioral health professional who is working with patients experiencing chronic pain. Graduate students, clinicians, and educators will find this book to be the perfect starting place for learning about the biopsychosocial theories and approaches for assessing and treating a variety of pain conditions across settings and populations. Chapters provide an ideal balance between concise, contemporary, and practical reviews of the existing literature and guidance about how to provide evidence-based care.-Jeffrey L. Goodie, PhD, ABPP, board-certified clinical health psychologist and president, American Board of Clinical Health Psychology (2019-2020) The Handbook of Psychosocial Interventions for Chronic Pain is an excellent introduction to the field of pain psychology. It provides concise, current overviews of biopsychosocial approaches to pain assessment and treatment. The emphasis on evidence-based cognitive behavioral and mindfulness interventions for a wide range of pain conditions and comorbid problems will be invaluable to clinicians new to the field. Novice and seasoned clinicians alike will benefit from the discussions of emerging and timely topics in pain psychology such as primary care integration, telehealth, and opioid risk reduction strategies. I highly recommend this book to behavioral health clinicians who want to improve their skills in working with patients with chronic pain. -Anne C.

It is with work such as this that our profession will continue to benefit from continued research, understanding, and application. -James D.
