Questions
 
5. Why is it that certain patients when referred for psychological treatment (for a pain problem), may not attend the sessions or follow through with homework assignments or practice recommendations that are often a part of these psychological approaches?  
6. What are the four psychologic factors of Mr. H’s pain?   
7. What are the three specific goals of a psychological assessment? 
8. How do the gate control theory and the biopsychosocial model of pain relate to cognitive-behavioral therapy?

Answers

A.  (a) identify psychosocial factors that may affect pain perception and behavior as well as functional impairment, (b) identify specific treatment goals for each patient and (c) identify intervention strategies that may produce maximum patient improvement.
B.  (1) significant fear-avoidance, (2) does not pace his activities to adjust for his pain, (3) coping skills are passive and rely heavily on resting and taking analgesic medications, and (4) prior history of depression.
C.  The gate control theory explicitly acknowledges the roles of cognitive-evaluative and affective motivational processes, in addition to sensory- discriminative or nociceptive input, in determining an individual’s perception of pain. The biopsychosocial model provides a more general framework for explaining the interrelationship among biologic, psychological, and social influences on individual’s experience of illness.
D.  One reason for this apparent resistance may be the belief that seeing a psychologist for pain problems amounts to an admission that their pain is "in the head" and not real.
