Your Fibromyalgia WorkbookI have already used this book with a handful of patients in the clinic. The chapters are broken down in a way that allows patients to really absorb the information. The Tasks (home work) have really assisted in opening up the communication between therapist and patient. The home work has really assisted me in gauging the patient's understanding of the concepts, as we move through the book. Many patient's have an out dated understanding of fibromyalgia. It is nice to be able to offer them a tool that is based on the lastest research.
