Pain Coping Study

Do you have pain? Have you tried everything?

We want to hear from you.

What’s in it for you? We are comparing two psychological methods for coping with chronic pain and are looking for volunteers to test these brief approaches.

What to expect? An initial 45 minute session during which you will complete some questionnaires about your pain. Then, you will be randomly assigned to either one of the two approaches for coping with pain and asked to practice this approach over a two week period, or you will simply complete online

You will then be asked to attend a second meeting to review your progress after two weeks and also to complete online questionnaires after 1 month, 3 months and 6 months.

Where? UTS GSH Clinical Psychology (CB07.02.010)

Who can be involved? Anyone over 18 with chronic pain (more than 3 months) able to read and write English fluently.
