This chapter provides an overview of the theory, research, and practice of cognitive therapy for pain. It begins with a summary of cognitive-behavioral theory of pain, followed by a description of pain-specific beliefs thought to influence adaptation to chronic pain. Given the saliency of catastrophizing cognitions to the experience of pain, the “pain catastrophizing” literature will be emphasized, followed by a discussion of assessment of beliefs and cognitions. A description of cognitive therapy for pain is then provided, followed by ideas for future directions for advancing the theory, research, and practice of cognitive therapy for pain.

Keywords:   cognitive therapy, pain, pain catastrophizing, belief
