Strategies for Coping with Stress and Chronic Pain.
Meyer, Genevieve Rogge
This guide presents strategies used in Pain Management and Stress Reduction workshops for helping the elderly cope with stress and chronic pain. Client evaluations of the workshops are given along with an analysis of the clients' presenting problems. Coping strategies described include: the relaxation response, imagery, daily logs, journal techniques, cognitive group discussion of dysfunctional thinking, values clarification, hugging, groupwork, and setting personally meaningful goals and putting them into action. Applications and analysis of the relaxation response are detailed most thoroughly. Appendices include three handouts: (1) suggested readings for pain management workshops; (2) step-by-step instructions for performing the relaxation response; and (3) pain management workshop topics and assignments.
