||PAIN: Assessment & Intervention From a Psychophysiological Perspective, 2nd Edition
In the fight against pain, psychophysiology and biofeedback are valuable, yet little know resources. Pain: Assessment and Intervention from a Psychophysiological Perspective, Second Edition, by Richard Sherman, PhD, takes a comprehensive look at the mechanisms behind pain disorders and provides specific, easy-to-understand analyses of various assessment and intervention techniques.
This, the newest book in AAPB's growing publication cadre, marks the culmination of over 30 years of research and clinical work by Richard Sherman, PhD, Director of the Behavioral Medicine Research and Training Foundation. He is best known for his work with phantom limb pain. The book begins with an overview of mechanisms of pain involving the central and peripheral nervous systems, the endocrine system, genetic influences and cognitive and emotional factors that can influence pain perception. Dr. Sherman then focuses on psychophysiological assessment and intervention for pain disorders, including headache, backache, phantom limb pain, Raynauds phenomenon and regional pain disorders.
The first edition of Pain was called it a classic in the field of pain management and biofeedback. In this edition, Dr. Sherman presents expanded, in-depth information that will satisfy the experienced clinician while still providing enough step-by-step detail to meet the needs of those who are new to biofeedback.
