What Top Professionals are Saying

"It is more important to know what sort of a patient has a disease than what sort of a disease the patient has”

— a dictum heartily embraced by Sir William Osler, the father of modern medicine.

 

Not only has Alan Weisser, PhD also embraced it, he has expanded upon it in his important book New Possibilities: Unraveling the Mystery and Mastering Chronic Pain, where he brings forth a knowledgeable, insightful, and
effective approach to managing chronic pain. His insights into the critical importance of what life experiences each person brings to their chronic pain condition — and the meaning of their pain to them — sets the stage for his comprehensive, function-based approach to treatment. While much has been written about the psychological management of chronic pain, the offerings of Dr. Weisser stand out for their sophistication, clarity, and applicability. He teaches us that, in many cases, the pain may be unavoidable but the suffering can become optional. For patients and providers alike, this is an essential read.”
