UW Health pain management health psychology staff in Madison, Wisconsin, are experts in the behavioral treatment of chronic pain.
Psychological Treatment
Working with our psychologists probably will not make your pain disappear, but it can help you learn new skills and techniques to help you achieve a better quality of life during clinic treatment and beyond.

Our psychologists offer:
  • Counseling
  • Relaxation training and guided imagery
  • Biofeedback
  • Self-hypnosis techniques.
In some cases (with the patient’s permission), family members may be asked to participate so they can help learn how to better help you manage your pain.
Support Group
We also offer Pain Management and Coping Groups. These eight-session weekly meetings let you work with psychologists and other patients on pain management skills and other ways to reduce the impact of your pain.
