 Micah R. Sadigh, PhD
Autogenic Training
 A Mind-Body Approach to the Treatment of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Syndrome
r. Sadigh’s book is a scholarly but highly readable treatisethat expertly covers therapeutic tech-niques for improving chronic painand relieving stress. He also authori-tatively tackles the problem of sleepdisorders.Hisbookisallthemoreim-portant today because these debilitat-ing conditions seem to be on the in-crease. Dr. Sadigh convincingly con-tends that the experiences of stressand chronic pain are synergisticallyintertwined. Thus, the reduction ofstress is a preponderant part of theprotocol of any treatment aimed atpain management.Even though the book details thespecific procedures of autogenic train-ing and highlights its benefits, Dr.Sadigh speaks to the advantages ofa multidisciplinary approach in thetreatment of pain and other disordersrelated to chronic stress. He specifi-cally evaluates interventions that rangefrom pharmacological ones to a num- berofothernonpharmacologicalstress-reductiontechniques.This‘global’pic-ture permits the reader or practitionertoappreciateautogenictrainingwithinthe context of other treatments forchronic pain, fibromyalgia, fatigue,and a host of other disorders.Dr. Sadigh’s book is a must-readfor any professional who occasionallyorregularlytreatspeoplewithchronicpain,fibromyalgia,sleepproblems,orany other disorder in which stress can be a significant contributor.”

r. Sadigh provides clinicianswith a clear, focused, detailedapproachtoclinicallymanagechronicpain syndromes that represents the best scientific and therapeutic knowl-edge we have to date. In this schol-arly, yet immensely practical book,the reader has access to everythingneeded to effectively treat fibro-myalgia and other chronic pain syn-dromes. A worthy effort. Extremelywell done!”

his long overdue and emi-nently readable volume is amilestone for behaviorally orientedpractitioners. Dr. Sadigh’s emphasison practical applications of powerfulclinical techniques should give this book a very long shelf life. Supervi-sors and students alike will find it avaluable addition to their arsenal ofclinical resources. The lucid reformu-lation of hitherto fragmented, ob-scure, and disparate literatures onautogenic training, clinical biofeed- back, and pain and stress manage-ment techniques provides a timely,compact, and authoritative treatise.The question and answer sectionalong with various exercise formatsandpatientchecklistsarebonusesnotordinarilyfoundinsuchpublications.The wealth of information, case stud-ies, and step-by-step applications of-fered on these pages will be of consid-erableinteresttoeveryprofessionalinhealth care and rehabilitation.”
