Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1337. Reviews the book, Chronic Low Back Pain: Assessment and Treatment from a Behavioral Rehabilitation Perspective by John W. S. Vlaeyen (1991). This text blends a neurophysiological theory of chronic pain with the elements of emotion, learning, and experience. Divided into four parts, the book includes sections about the conceptual framework of the behavioral rehabilitation approach to chronic pain, the development and reliability of instruments used to assess overt motor and verbal cognitive responses to pain, the effectiveness of several interdisciplinary behavioral treatments implemented in a Dutch rehabilitation center, and the implications of the behavioral rehabilitation model of treatment and the research findings discussed throughout the book.
