Dr. Sullivan studies the psychology of pain and disability. He is known primarily for his research on the relation between catastrophic thinking and pain experience, and for the development of community-based approaches to the management of pain-related disability. Current research focuses on the communication of pain experience and the prediction of problematic health outcomes.
