Pain, Fear, and Suffering

Pain-related fear is thought to play an important role in the way people experience chronic pain and disability. This symposium brings together new insights from experimental research on pain-related fear and avoidance and their impact on people's lives. Ann Meulders from the University of Leuven, Belgium will present new research that examines how fear of movement-related pain can generalize to unique movements. Petra Karsdorp of Utrecht University and Maastricht University will explore the hypothesis that goals unrelated to pain-avoidance may play a role in motivating performance during painful tasks. Katja Wiech of the University of Oxford will present new findings from neuroimaging studies on the neural mechanisms that may modulate pain. And Marlies den Hollander of Maastricht University will discuss the potential of Graded Exposure in Vivo as a treatment to reduce pain-related fear in patients with chronic pain. <
