Most clinicians agree that biobehavioural factors are important considerations in the assessment and treatment of headache patients. Attention to psychological and behavioural issues may become even a greater concern as the frequency of a patient's headaches increases, there is increased disability secondary to headaches and/or there is inadequate response to usually effective treatment. The present article will highlight biobehavioural factors that should be considered in the assessment process involving headache patients and will provide a model for integration of behavioural treatment into clinical practice.
