A Powerful Step-by-Step Approach to Dealing with Chronic Pain

Sixteen years ago, psychologist and author Michael Lewandowski devised a series of questions for patients suffering from chronic pain to identify specific factors that aggravate and perpetuate pain. Those questions became the Behavioral Assessment of Pain (BAP) questionnaire, which is now used throughout the world in the treatment of chronic pain. Now, for the first time, this book brings this powerful set of tools to people just like you who are looking for a way to live better with pain.

The tools in this book will give you control over your own pain-management process by helping you monitor your responses to pain. Use the assessments to help gauge your levels of physical and emotional pain, sleep habits, and general ability to function throughout the day. Then put the book's practical advice to work to maintain a higher quality of life despite pain. Ultimately, you'll start to achieve higher activity levels and a greater degree of fulfillment.

Use these techniques to:

*Reduce fatigue and boost energy levels
*Manage medication use wisely
*Change your thoughts about chronic pain
*Stop avoiding pleasurable activities
*Limit emotional pain and suffering
*Enjoy greater family, social, and intimate engagement
