Editorial Reviews

Review


"Both seasoned clinicians and novices will benefit significantly from reading and making use of the information contained in this succinct, yet practical volume. John Otis clearly guides the reader with sufficient detail on how to implement CBT in order to achieve optimal results with this difficult population. His wealth of knowledge and clinical experience permeate the text. I highly recommend this volume."--Dennis C. Turk, Ph.D., John and Emma Bonica Professor of Anesthesiology & Pain Research, University of Washington


"Dr. Otis has compiled a practical evidence-based book rooted in theory with a wealth of therapeutic interventions on the self-management of chronic pain. It is easy to read and understand and includes important educational material and helpful forms to offer guidance in the management of pain. It is printed in engaging fashion and packed with treatments that really work. This book is a highly recommended for both those who suffer from chronic pain and for their healthcare providers."--Robert N. Jamison, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Harvard Medical School; Departments of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine, and Psychiatry, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston


"A significant challenge to the field of pain management is the limited access to empirically-validated psychological services. This manual by Dr. John Otis provides a step-by-step guide that addresses each of the key components of adaptive pain coping and provides numerous creative and easy to use tools to support skill practice and learning. Dr. Otis is to be commended for this important contribution."--Robert D. Kerns, Ph.D., National Program Director, VA Central Office; Chief, Psychology Service, VA Connecticut Healthcare System; Professor of Psychiatry, Neurology and Psychology, Yale University

I am a clinical psychologist working in a multidisciplinary pain treatment clinic. I also have chronic pain. I have found four self-help books (see my other reviews) that I currently recommend to patients. This is one of them. This is a great pain coping resources self-help book.

Like other good pain coping self-help books (e.g., "Managing Your Pain Before It Mangers You," by Margaret Caudill, MD, PhD, "The Pain Survival Guide," By Dennis Turk, PhD and "Hypnotize Yourself Out of Pain Now!", by Bruch Eimer, PhD), it does an effective job of covering the range of what has been learned on helping chronic pain patients help themselves. Its chapters are structured effectively with many good self-help tools/exercises. It is cognitive behavioral in focus and I would say that its only limitations are that it somewhat neglects interpersonal factors in pain. Also, it does not cover self-hypnosis, though it does cover imagery. If you are looking for self-help help with chronic pain, I highly recommend this book.

The "Treatments that Work" series is designed for clinicians; it is not meant to be a self-help resource for lay readers. This volume offers an 11-session cognitive-behavioral treatment model to support those who must learn to cope with the challenge of chronic pain.

Sessions are as follows:
1. Education on Chronic Pain
2. Theories of Pain and Diaphragmatic Breathing
3. Progressive Muscle Relaxation and Visual Imagery
4. Automatic Thoughts and Pain
5. Cognitive Restructuring
6. Stress Management
7. Time-based Pacing
8. Pleasant Activity Scheduling
9. Anger Management
10. Sleep Hygiene
11. Relapse Prevention and Flare-Up Planning

Not a substitute for medical assessment and management, but an evidence-based supportive treatment model which can be readily implemented by CBT-trained clinicians.

This book was very used-friendly. For a beginning clinician, it walked me through step-by-step how to use this treatment with patients with chronic pain. It could also be used as a self-help type of book, and I actually recommended ito to a family member who suffers from chronic pain. Great find!

I am dealing with a head injury and everything is very different. This book and the guidance of my psychologist have helped me continue with my job and family. The headaches are constant and I am told to live with it. This book assisted me in finding ways to get past the headache

Format: Paperback
I worked with Dr. Otis for over 7 months. My chronic pain in my abdomen had become so oppressive that I was considering giving up. My pain is random because of nerve damage caused by an accident that also rendered me paralyzed from the neck down. I've been in bed for the majority of ten years. Twenty two years after my accident, I discovered Dr. Otis. Through secure teleconferencing, we read through his book,"Managing Chronic Pain", along with the workbook exercises. Believe it or not, I've now completed his program and I apply what I've learned to everyday life as I deal with my chronic pain.

If you have chronic pain that is ruining your life, I highly recommend this book- especially to anyone who is serious about trying to challenge your way of thinking. It is hard work, but worth it! Dr. Otis has changed my life with this book. I do not have less pain now, but I have learned more effective coping mechanisms. Thanks to Dr. Otis, I'm a better man, husband, and father.

This workbook is laid out in an easy to understand format that provides a lot of good information. Its only drawback is that it is best used in conjunction with a seeing a doctor or therapist. Using it for self help is still valuable, however.
