Chronic pain is the most common healthcare problem impacting children, adolescents, adults and older adults (Jensen & Turk, 2014). Individuals suffering from chronic pain may experience significant interference with enjoyment of life and daily activities due to psychological inflexibility (McCracken & Vowles, 2014; Renshaw, 2018). Psychologists and other behavioral health providers can play an important role in preventing or decreasing the potential impact of chronic pain. This session will cover concepts of the biopsychosocial model of pain, neurophysiological processes enhancing or inhibiting pain, psychosocial risk factors for high-impact chronic pain, the core components of a value-based model for the treatment of chronic pain, and how psychological flexibility contributes to decreased impact and improved quality of life for patients. Psychological flexibility and pain management research will be presented.
