January 1984

This article briefly reviews behavioral and psychologic methods currently used to assess chronic pain patients. Assessment techniques designed to measure pain report, overt behavior patterns, and psychologic functioning are described. A variety of behavioral treatment procedures for chronic pain are also discussed. Treatment techniques can be grouped into two major categories: operant conditioning methods, and self-management strategies. Critical needs for future research are briefly identified.
