While there is widespread recognition among experts that biological, psychological, and social factors influence the experience of pain, for reasons unclear the social component has failed to attract much attention. Recognizing the larger social reality in the background of each patient, this book fills a major gap in the literature by incorporating the social dimension - most significantly, the family - in the overall assessment and treatment of pain.
