Summary

This booklet for practitioners and others working with groups of older adults with chronic pain describes a model for a program for learning about factors associated with pain and about coping. An overview is provided of the model developed at the Turner Geriatric Clinic that has an education and support group format and involves both an informational and experiential component. (Each session combines a lecture by an expert with brief experiential exercises and/or personal group discussion. The various phases of the program are discussed in detail, including planning, publicity, six group sessions (with two handouts), and evaluation. Questionnaires administered during the first and last sessions are provided. These recommendations from the planning members are listed: extensive publicity, six sessions in the prescribed order, review of previous session and preview of following one in each group meeting, circular seating arrangement, speakers who present too much rather than too little information, one speaker per session, review after each meeting among planning members, general aches and pains emphasis rather than focus on specific chronic pain condition, ongoing evaluation, and variations, including different settings and leadership arrangements.
