The Psychosocial Factors and Interventions (PsyFi) SIG seeks to improve the lives of people with pain by understanding the role of psychosocial factors and interventions in the pain experience. We are committed to assisting members at every career level including trainees and those early in their careers by providing mentorship, leadership opportunities, and collaboration. Together, we can promote health and improve pain care through research, practice, education, training, and advocacy.

Meetings and Events

The next Psychosocial Factors and Interventions SIG meeting will be on January 19th @ 1PM PST/4PM EST via Zoom. We are encouraging trainees to submit relevant poster abstracts for the upcoming USASP meeting that fit within the broad scope of the SIG. A small committee will be assembled to overview abstracts and grant two awards to trainees (one related to psychosocial factors; one related to intervention). We are soliciting a SIG member to work with co-chairs to establish a USASP sub-Twitter for the SIG. For those interested, please reach out to Matt Herbert and Hailey Bulls.
