Transforming the Pain Terrain: Theory and Practice in the Use of Mental Imagery for the Treatment of Pain
David Pincus, Tonya Wachsmuth-Schlaefer, Anees A. Sheikh, and Shirin Ezaz-Nikpay
"This chapter is intended to provide practitioners of imagery psychotherapy with the information to develop such therapeutic maps when treating victims of pain disorders. First, there is a brief discussion of individual causal factors, which are analogous to potentially interesting features of the clinical landscape. Next, the discussion shifts to characteristics of the clinical landscape as a whole, through the lens of systemic theories. Finally, a sample of the various techniques in imagery therapy for pain will be summarized. The use of these techniques, informed by a systemic perspective, may provide the means for empirical and practical explorations of more radical and potentially more potent pain treatments that aim beyond simple here-to-there movements, and instead aim to transform the clinical landscape itself."

Late in 1987, research staff from the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the National Association of Social Workers, and representatives of professional psychiatric nursing formed a work group on human resources data with staff from the National Institute of Mental Health (Dr. Manderscheid). This group had several major purposes, including identifying common, core data on human resources from each discipline, preparing a chapter for Mental Health 1990, identifying data gaps, coming up with plans to address those gaps, and improving survey compatibility between the involved disciplines.
