I've read about cognitive therapy for people who are having a lot of pain. How does this work?

Studies are being conducted on whether counseling can help people manage their chronic pain. A recent study reviewed previously done trials that investigated people with arthritis and how psychosocial interventions helped or didn't help them cope. The researchers found that patients who participated in the programs for cognitive-behavioral therapy, pain-coping skills, biofeedback, or stress management, among others, did report higher levels of coping with their pain and, in turn, their complaints of pain decreased.
