Evidence-Based Treatments for Chronic Pain: Tips for the Generalist 
Chronic pain is a major health concern for millions of Americans. Chronic pain often influences may aspects of an individual's functioning. Psychologists play an integral role in the treatment of chronic pain. In fact, researchers have studied and delineated several evidence-based psychological treatments for the most common chronic pain syndromes. Generalists interested in working with this population can learn how to apply psychological theory and interventions to those with chronic pain. In this presentation, learners will be presented with the foundational biological and psychological aspects of the most commonly occurring chronic pain syndromes. They will also increase their knowledge of the basic concepts of psychological factors associated with chronic pain and will identify the role of evidence-based interventions in the treatment of chronic pain.
