5-minute Anonymous Survey


The American Academy of Pain Medicine Task Force on Pain Psychology is conducting a national needs assessment. Ultimately, we aim to better connect people with pain with pain psychology resources.  A critical first step in our national needs assessment is surveying people living with pain.

Pain psychology is a treatment modality that seeks to empower people living with pain to better manage their pain by using specific skills and techniques. A pain psychologist is a therapist with very specific training and experience in the treatment of pain.  In addition to learning pain management skills, in treatment you often learn about goal setting, problem solving, and overcoming barriers—skills that you use to improve your quality of life.

We value your opinion and experience. Our advance thanks to you for taking a moment to share your thoughts with us about pain psychology in this brief, anonymous survey:
