The Pain Behaviour Checklist: factor analysis and validation.

  • D Anciano
  • Published 1986 in The British journal of clinical psychology


A factor analysis was performed on Philips & Hunter's (1981) Pain Behaviour Checklist for headache sufferers. Three intuitively meaningful factors emerged. All were similarly associated with overall intensity; pain severity does not determine type of pain behaviour. Differences in pain behaviour emerged between migraine and tension headache groups.
