Managing Pain Before it Manages You. (2002) by Margaret Caudill. New York: Guilford.

Dr. Caudill begins by quoting the actor Craig Nelson: “Pain may be mandatory, but suffering is optional.” This is a very useful self-help guide for pain management. It explains pain and the mind-body connection, guides you towards a healthy type of acceptance, teaches you to solve pain related problems, and helps you with both psychological and behavioural management strategies. It contains helpful checklists and worksheets.
