I was excited when Dr. Joe Tatta invited me to be on “The Healing Pain Podcast” about psychology and its role in pain management, and symptom and medication reduction. We covered a lot of ground in our hour-long video interview, including what’s needed to help patients suffer less and gain control over their experience. I talked about my new book, The Opioid-Free Pain Relief Kit ©2016 and learned that Dr. Tatta has a book of his own coming out in early 2017. A DPT who promotes the biopsychosocial model of pain treatment — and educates the public about it — he is a tour de force in the field.

Thank you, Dr. Joe, for a great and lively chat about reducing pain and improving function.
