Event/Session Summary

Multilevel Perspectives on the Social Foundations of Pain

Full Day SIG Satellite Symposium
Hosted By: Social Aspects of Pain SIG

The inaugural satellite symposium meeting of the IASP Social Aspects of Pain SIG (SocSIG) brings together some of the brightest minds in the field of pain research – both established and emerging – to showcase multilevel perspectives on the social foundations of pain and highlight avenues through which social aspects of pain can be harnessed to improve pain management. Reflecting the scope of social aspects of pain, the full-day program features an interdisciplinary group of basic, clinical, and translational scientists and thought-leaders presenting their latest research into intrapersonal, interpersonal, group, and systemic factors underpinning the experience, expression, assessment, and/or management of pain. Social aspects of pain have historically been treated as peripheral rather than fundamental to the study and treatment of pain. The inaugural satellite symposium of the SocSIG will demonstrate that social processes play a defining role in the experience and expression of pain, and as such, play a crucial role in effective pain management.
