A recent research article published in 'Evidence-Based Practice' (September 2000), a publication of the 'Journal of Family Practice' stated that behavioral therapy i.e.: counseling, imagery, reinforcement and relaxation therapies "has a moderate to small positive effect on pain intensity, generic functional status, and behavioral outcomes (eg, pain behavior, anxiety, depression) compared with no-treatment controls." This should be good news to anyone working with behavioral therapies and pain control. Hope it helps.
