Fibromyalgia (FM) is characterized by widespread pain and co‐morbid symptoms such as fatigue and depression. For FM, medical treatments alone appear insufficient. Recent meta‐analyses point to the utility of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), but effects are moderate. Within the continuous development of CBT, the empirical support for acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) has increased rapidly. ACT focuses on improving functioning by increasing the patient's ability to act in accordance with… Expand
Effectiveness of group acceptance and commitment therapy for fibromyalgia: A 6-month randomized controlled trial (EFFIGACT study)
TLDR
GACT was statistically superior to both RPT and WL immediately after treatment, and improvements were maintained at 6 months with medium effect sizes in most cases, while changes in pain acceptance only mediated the relationship between study condition and health‐related quality of life. Expand

Preliminary investigation of self-as-context in people with fibromyalgia
TLDR
Preliminary results show potentially important associations between SAC and functioning in people with FM, and suggest a bi-factor structure, with a general factor underlying all items and two sub-factors, self-as-distinction and self- as-observer. Expand
Brief Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Fibromyalgia: Feasibility and Effectiveness of a Replicated Single-Case Design
TLDR
An alternative design to large-scale trials, one that focuses on the individual change, exists and it can be implemented in pain research, and the use of technology simplifies such designs by facilitating ecological momentary assessment. Expand

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy increases pain-evoked activation of the prefrontal cortex in patients with fibromyalgeia
TLDR
It is suggested that CBT changes the brain’s processing of pain through an altered cerebral loop between pain signals, emotions, and cognitions; leading to increased access to executive regions for reappraisal of pain. Expand
