Book for clinicians on Pain-Related Fear: Exposure-Based Treatment for Chronic Pain
The book entitled ‘Pain-Related Fear: Exposure-Based Treatment for Chronic Pain’ by Johan Vlaeyen, Stephen Morley,
Steven Linton, Katja Boersma and Jeroen de Jong was published in 2012 by the IASP press
This book identifies fear of movement and injury as a primary issue in chronic pain management.
It provides a detailed treatment manual on exposure-based techniques for the reduction of pain-related fear
and disability in chronic pain. It includes a disc with therapist and patient materials and videos.
The book reads very fluently, and is a must-read for every clinician working with chronic pain patients.
Although primarily authored by psychologists, Pain in Motion acknowledges the value of exposure-based treatment
for a variety of professions, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and rehabilitation medicine.
The book is authored by the world-leading researchers and clinicians in the field of the fear-avoidance model for chronic pain,
and its management using exposure-based treatment.
