It is clear, concise, and helpful.

Immediately, I sent off for a copy and spent a long time absorbing the books contents and then listened to the CD that complements what the book explains.
Mrs. Gillian Nicolson
I especially appreciated the information about the emotional stages of pain and how anxiety, anger and depression are normal responses to pain.

Format: Paperback
I have suffered from chronic pain for over a year. I have been to every doctor and specialist imaginable. Noone has been able to tell me what's wrong with me and why I'm not getting better. I have felt like I was going crazy. This book helped me understand that there is more to pain than just physical injury. The explanation of how pain is in the brain is very clear and easy to understand and made me think differently about my pain. I especially appreciated the information about the emotional stages of pain and how anxiety, anger and depression are normal responses to pain. The book goes into a lot of the physiological changes associated with pain and how to reverse them. One of the most useful strategies is the free-sleeping, the idea that instead of trying to sleep normally you can sleep when your body tells you to. Since I am not working I have been able to do this and I find that I am getting a lot more rest. I also found the brain-based pain-relief strategies helpful, especially the bilateral stimulation concept. The Cd that goes with the book is also amazing, it reduces my pain and makes me feel better every time I hear it.

Format: Paperback
Mark Grant, a psychologist in Sydney, Australia, shares his understandings of how EMDR and related methods can release physical and psychological pains. His detailed presentation on the prevalence and contributors to pain is methodical, and his discussion of therapeutic approaches includes helpful, step-by-step exercises. For instance, Grant surveys research showing that people who are stressed are more likely to experience pains of all sorts, as well as various diseases.

Stress is anything that threatens your ability to satisfy your survival needs.
Five main types and effects of stress which lead to pain:
1. lack of safety and support
1. emotional disconnection
2. increased physiological arousal
3. negative thinking
4. trauma (pain memories). (p. 16)

Five basic strategies for overcoming pain:
1. safety and support
2. reconnecting with your feelings
3. learning how to control stressful feelings and pain
4. changing your thinking
5. building resilience (p. 17)

Grant reviews research on
...the complex, multi-layered nature of traumatic pain... recommend[ing] a phase-oriented approach incorporating safety, exposure and emotional regulation skills training, and reintegration (learning to think and behave more adaptively). Each phase of treatment addresses a different element of the problem, with all the phases forming a comprehensive treatment strategy. Drawing on the phase-oriented approach, and what we know about the different types and effects of stress which maintain pain, the following five-stage strategy is recommended:
1. safety and support
2. reconnecting with your feelings
3. learning how to control stressful feelings and pain
4. changing your thinking
5. building resilience.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was told about this book by a psychotherapist from new Zealand. She had a copy for me to browse whilst she stayed a few days in England. It was easy to read and the explanations and causes for emotional and physical pain made complete sense. Immediately, I sent off for a copy and spent a long time absorbing the books contents and then listened to the CD that complements what the book explains. The CD incorporates relaxation therapy and the technique EMDR which is bilateral stimulation for the brain by means of an interesting sound alternating in both ears. It is important, therefore to listen to the CD with headphones. As a Shiatsu Practioner I treat some clients who have sufferd abuse and they have a lot of emotional and physical pain to shift. As some therapies take a long time to provide relief and can be quite costly, I have recommended this book and CD to help them and am getting very good feedback.
