Imagery and Verbal Counseling Methods in Stress Inoculation Training for Pain Control.
Worthington, Everett L., Jr.; Shumate, Michael
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v28 n1 p1-6 Jan 1981
Pleasant imagery relieves pain and may account for much of the effectiveness of stress inoculation training. Women who used imagery controlled their pain better; women who did not use imagery had longer tolerance when they heard pain conceptualized as a multistage process. Self-instruction did not affect pain control. (Author)
