Abstract

The aim of the review was to evaluate the current literature applying Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) to therapeutic interventions for people suffering chronic pain. Peer review articles were sourced and the format of the interventions and outcome measures they produced were explored. Clinical interventions ranged from intensive multi disciplinary residential or hospital based programmes, to weekly outpatient settings and individualised treatment. Whilst still in the preliminary stages, the literature base provided support for the efficacy of ACT when compared to no treatment controls. Results included statistically and clinically significant improvements in affect (anxiety and depression), physical and psychosocial disability and objective measures of medication and GP use. Future research was considered in light of the current methodological limitations of the studies and implications for clinical practice were discussed.
