JABR PUBLISHES TOPICS IN THE FOREFRONT OF THE FIELD
The 2017 Special Issue on Pain Catastrophizing, volume 22 issue 1, includes some of the most recent studies of pain catastrophizing, and highlights the increasing complexity of this construct. This important role in pain will need to be better understood and validated for future development of the most variable overall model of it – and the Journal of Applied Biobehavioral Research is publishing cutting edge research on the topic. The Special Issue on Pain Catastrophizing has featured in Science Magazine and the Pain Research Forum.
