&NA; The present research addressed the relation between catastrophizing, depression and response expectancies in anticipation of an experimental pain procedure. One hundred and twenty undergraduates (48 men, 72 women) participated in exchange for course credit. Prior to immersing one arm in a container of ice water, participants were asked to complete measures of catastrophizing and depression, and to estimate the degree of pain and emotional distress they expected to experience. After a 1‐min… Expand

Tables and Topics from this paper

Psychological resilience predicts decreases in pain catastrophizing through positive emotions.
TLDR
Multilevel modeling analyses indicated that independent of level of neuroticism, negative emotions, pain intensity, income, and age, high-resilient individuals reported greater positive emotions and exhibited lower day-to-day pain catastrophizing compared with low-resILient individuals. Expand
Ethnicity, catastrophizing, and qualities of the pain experience.
TLDR
Examining differences in pain responses by ethnicity among healthy, young adults attempted to determine whether such an ethnicity-pain relation was mediated by catastrophizing using the standard Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS) and a modified version of the PCS reflecting situational catastrophized during a cold pressor task. Expand
Pain catastrophizing and social support in married individuals with chronic pain: the moderating role of pain duration
TLDR
Pain duration did not interact with catastrophizing in relating to psychological distress, which precluded the examination of distress as a mediator between the pain duration‐catastrophizing interaction and support, and psychological distress did not significantly mediate the relationships between pain catastrophization and perceived support. Expand
Effects of coping statements on experimental pain in chronic pain patients
TLDR
The results reveal that manipulation of coping causes changes in pain endurance, and catastrophizing statements as a coping strategy leads to significantly lower PSR. Expand
Role of Pain-Based Catastrophizing in Pain, Disability, Distress, and Suicidal Ideation
TLDR
Pain catastro-phizing and pain acceptance constitute risk and resilience factors in chronic pain management and should be assessed and targeted in pain management. Expand
The influence of pain catastrophizing on experimentally induced emotion and emotional modulation of nociception.

TLDR
Evidence is provided indicating catastrophizing does not alter pain and nociception indirectly via emotional processes. Expand
Catastrophic thinking about pain is independently associated with pain severity, disability, and somatic complaints in school children and children with chronic pain.
TLDR
Results suggest the importance of assessing for pain catastrophizing in children and suggest the effects of age, sex, and NA in terms of communicating distress to significant others. Expand
Psychosocial Correlates of Sensitization in Chronic Pain: An Exploratory Analysis
TLDR
The results of this study could help to clarify the physiological mechanisms believed to play a role in both pain and affect regulation and assist future researchers in developing studies to better examine the etiology and possible treatments for disorders of these systems. Expand
Factors influencing Pain Willingness and Engagement
TLDR
Results indicate that to help people adjust to FM, it may be more important to address emotional issues and pain catastrophising than to focus on pain severity. Expand
Association between catastrophizing and self-rated pain and disability in patients with chronic low back pain.
TLDR
This study indicates that measures of catastrophizing show notable measurement overlap in multivariate models, consistent with previous models proposing that negative psychological attributes are associated with greater perceptions of pain and disability. Expand

Negative affect and the experience of chronic pain.
TLDR
Support is suggested for the hypothesis that chronic pain adversely impacts mood rather than the opposing hypothesis that negative mood is a predisposing factor in the development of chronic pain. Expand

TLDR
Regression analyses indicate that anger is an important concomitant of the depression that pain patients experience and suggests that treatment techniques specifically targeting anger and frustration in these patients may prove efficacious. Expand
Depression and the chronic pain experience
TLDR
Depressed chronic pain patients reported greater pain intensity, greater interference due to pain and more pain behaviors, which provide further support for the importance of incorporating depression into clinical and theoretical formulations of chronic pain. Expand

TLDR
The findings suggest that excessive focus on pain sensations may be one of the mechanisms by which catastrophizing leads to increased pain. Expand
Surgical patients' expectations of pain and discomfort: Does accuracy of expectations minimise post-surgical pain and distress?
TLDR
The positive correlations between expected and reported pain and emotional variables suggest that the manipulation of patients' emotional responses may be as effective as manipulating pain expectancies in controlling the pain and distress of surgery. Expand
Pain coping strategies and depression in rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
The finding that the frequent use of passive pain coping strategies in the face of high pain contributed to the most severe level of depression over time implies that there may be a potential benefit of developing techniques to reduce the use of Passive Pain coping strategies to deal with chronic arthritis pain in cognitive-behavioral pain management programs.
