Positive reinforcement when speaking to the pain?

    In this TMS battle, is it ever appropriate to give positive reinforcement to the pain itself if it's 'behaving'? So for instance, if you're being active with not a lot of pain, is it productive or counterproductive in terms of making new neural pathways to think or say to the "monster", which is how I think of the subconscious, "Good boy! Keep it up! Nice job! You're letting ME handle the feelings instead of distracting me with pain and fear."
