    Readers may be interested in a book which I have just published titled The Hidden Psychology of Pain. It is based on my personal experiences of 20 years of chronic pain; my use of a psychological approach to overcoming it; and my experiences as a practicing psychologist in sharing these ideas with others in therapy. The book is both an educational t0ol for health professionals, as well as a self-help book for those suffering chronic pain. It contains discussions on- the cultural understanding (and myths) surrounding chronic pain, and the history of these approaches; real case studies; the latest research based scientific evidence supporting this approach; structured means of implimenting the approach; self-healing strategies; discussion of the different approaches to chronic pain, as well as the evidence (or lack there of) regarding their efficacy; the neurobiology of chronic pain; the relationship between psychological trauma and chronic pain; and discussion of the efficacy of different approaches to psychotherapy in regards to chronic pain.
