About the Course:
This article reviews the progress of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in the treatment of chronic pain and the challenges now faced by researchers and clinicians interested in meeting this need for development. It then focuses in greater detail on areas of development within CBT, namely Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness-based approaches, areas that may hold potential for future progress. Three specific recommendations are offered here to achieve this progress.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness for Chronic Pain: Model, Process, and Progress created by Lance M. McCracken & Kevin E. Vowles in 2014.
