As what has been constantly reiterated, chronic pain should not only be addressed from the physical and biomedical model. It is time to shift to what is called the biophysical model where the social ramifications of living with chronic pain should be explored. Social psychologist Dr. Claire Ashton James, PhD is totally on-board with this. Her research investigates the social aspects of health and well-being with a focus on pain management. She explores how culture influences pain as well as the importance of patient-provider communication. Moving towards some issues in the field, Dr. Claire addresses the role of bias in the medical encounter, the impact of patient trust to pain, and the role of group-based pain management programs to health, behavior, and well-being.
