Aimed at scientists, policy analysts, and clinicians interested in a holistic understanding of pain, the 21 chapters she presents discuss the experience of pain and suffering from acute and chronic pain ... ." (SciTech Book News, March, 2009) "This book describes pain in all of its facets within a multidisciplinary, biobehavioral framework, addressing management, evaluation, and treatment of pain as well. ... The audience is ... health professionals, psychologists, and specialists in pain management or palliative care, as well as researchers and students in the field of public health. ... This book is well written with helpful tables and figures. ... This is a thorough look at the issue of pain from a biobehavioral approach, which includes the interactive roles of various factors." (Gary B Kaniuk, Doody's Review Service, April, 2009) "This book, edited by Rhonda Moore and including contributions from a multidisciplinary panel of experts in the field from many countries, follows this tradition. ... The organization of the chapters reflects the reality ... interaction of multiple notions and skills is required for the correct global assessment of patients with pain. The book's 21 chapters are generally comprehensive and well referenced. ... This book should be of interest to a large readership and could help to increase awareness of the specific features of chronic pain."
