Hudgens, Alletta Jervey
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v5 n4 p67-78 Oct 1979
Describes the outcome of a short-term, family-centered, behavioral approach to chronic pain at the University of Minnesota Hospitals. Family members were taught operant conditioning techniques which rewarded nonpain-oriented behavior in patients. By treating the total family, 75 percent of the patients and families were able to lead satisfactory lives again. (Author)
