In Pain Management, Dr. Robert J. Gatchel shows how his biopsychosocial approach to treating clients with pain can uncover the complex factors that create pain. Every client experiences pain differently, so it is important to do a thorough assessment that covers physiological, social, and psychological facets of a client before recommending a course of treatment.

In this session, Dr. Gatchel works with a 59-year-old woman, first evaluating her psychological and medical status to determine the causes of her pain and then helping her with the anxiety she feels about the pain.
