Pain and me - Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for chronic pain

A video from livewellwithpain.co.uk on the subject of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for chronic pain.

‘This video is my personal interpretation of my research on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for chronic pain. It took me a long time to understand that acceptance was not the same as giving up or losing hope, but instead, I’ve come to see it as a conscious decision to completely engage with life, including pain. There is plenty of evidence and science behind the approach, but here I wanted to introduce the way I think about it. It’s really simple (which doesn’t make it easy!).’
