Abstract
There are limited data on the stigma perceived by patients with chronic pain and there are no data on the effect of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) on stigma in chronic pain patients. The purpose of this study was to examine perceived stigma in adults with chronic pain and the effects of a cognitive-behavioral pain management program (PAIN 101) on stigma. The sources of stigma assessed, were the patients’ physicians, family members and the public. Perceived stigma was experienced the most from the public, followed by the physicians and then by family members. CBT had no effect on stigma perception while the pain management program was successful in reducing anxiety and pain-related disability in patients. It was found that depression, pain, and pain-related disability predicted stigma.
