|Abstract:||Psychological (nondrug) treatments have been shown to be effective for both chronic pain and depression. In contrast to drug therapy, in which the goal of treatment is usually symptom reduction, the core goal of psychological treatments is not always a reduction in pain. Psychological therapy is typically focused on improving function and quality of life despite the presence of ongoing pain.|
