Chronic pain can be a source of immense human suffering and disability. There is emerging evidence indicating that as pain sufferers set aside struggles for control over pain, attend to present experiences, and engage in meaningful activities, they suffer less and function better. These treatment processes are respectively referred to as acceptance, mindfulness, and values-based action. The literature suggests these processes are highly relevant in the treatment of chronic pain, where the best researched therapy model has been Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a form of CBT that directly targets these processes.
