Full Title: Key Concepts for Effectively Assessing and Treating Chronic Pain Patients and Concomitant Psychophysiological Difficulties

This symposium focuses on cultivating client resilience through psychological assessment and treatment of issues stemming from chronic pain. Emphasis is placed on treating psychophysiological sequelae concomitant of pain ailments from headache and chronic back and injury-related pain, to less common diagnoses such as multiple sclerosis and complex regional pain syndrome. Unique considerations with veterans and PTSD are addressed, as are potential challenges in diverse populations. Experiential instruction augments the learning of assessment techniques that foster clinical goal development and use pain-oriented CBT, along with physiologic self-regulation and related relaxation therapies. We will review recent trends and evidence-based approaches in the field of pain management cross-disciplines.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  1. Identify five psychophysiological reactions that occur during acute and chronic stress and pain that are important to address in treatment.
  2. Identify two interventions to assist patients in moving forward through stages of change
  3. Provide two examples of outcome measures that can be implemented to track clinical progress in patients with chronic pain.
  4. Identify two psychologically based treatments that have demonstrated significant benefit to patients with chronic pain.
