Description

Working With Headaches presents an example of Dr. Donald B. Penzien's multidisciplinary, cognitive–behavioral approach to treating clients who suffer from headaches. In addition to talking directly with the client, the approach emphasizes working closely with the client's physicians to make sure that the client receives the best medical treatment.

In this session, Dr. Penzien works with a 60 year-old African American woman who has suffered from headaches since she was 17. The session illustrates an initial evaluation, including gathering information about medication, stressors, and behavior that may affect the client.
