Objective. We performed the first systematic review with metaanalysis of the efficacy of cognitive-behavioral therapies (CBT) in fibromyalgia syndrome (FM). Methods. We screened Cochrane Library, Medline, PsychINFO, and Scopus (through June 2009) and the reference sections of original studies and systematic reviews for CBT in FM. Randomized controlled trials (RCT) comparing CBT to controls were analyzed. Primary outcomes were pain, sleep, fatigue, and health-related quality of life (HRQOL… 
Efficacy and safety of meditative movement therapies in fibromyalgia syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
Yoga had short-term beneficial effects on some key domains of FMS and MMT are safe, with a need for high-quality studies with larger sample sizes to confirm the results.
Effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy in the treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome: a meta-analytic literature review.
TLDR
Data showed that CBT does not provide better results than other non-pharmacological treatments on outcomes of pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance and quality of life, at either a short or long-term evaluation, and that cost-effectiveness studies could help understand whether the reduction in the number of visits to the doctor could balance the cost of CBT to the health public system.
Efficacy of hypnosis/guided imagery in fibromyalgia syndrome - a systematic review and meta-analysis of controlled trials
TLDR
The significant effect on pain at final treatment was associated with low methodological and low treatment quality, and further studies with better treatment quality and adequate methodological quality assessing all key domains of FMS are necessary to clarify the efficacy of H/GI in FMS.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for the Treatment of Juvenile Fibromyalgia:
TLDR
CBT was found to be a safe and effective treatment for reducing functional disability and symptoms of depression in adolescents with juvenile FMS in a multisite, single-blind, randomized clinical trial.
Cognitive behavioral therapy for the treatment of juvenile fibromyalgia: a multisite, single-blind, randomized, controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
CBT was found to be a safe and effective treatment for reducing functional disability and symptoms of depression in adolescents with juvenile FMS.
Effectiveness of cognitive behaviour therapy for the treatment of catastrophisation in patients with fibromyalgia: a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
CBT shows higher efficacy than RPT and TAU not only in key outcomes in FM, such as function and quality of life, but also in relevant mediators of treatment effects, suchAs pain catastrophising and pain acceptance.
Efficacy, Tolerability, and Safety of Hypnosis in Adult Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that hypnosis was safe and provided long-term adequate symptom relief in 54% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome refractory to conventional therapy.
Cognitive behavioural therapies for fibromyalgia.
TLDR
CBTs provided a small incremental benefit over control interventions in reducing pain, negative mood and disability at the end of treatment and at long-term follow-up.
Efficacy of Combined Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia and Pain in Patients with Fibromyalgia: A Randomized Controlled Trial
This controlled trial aims to analyze the efficacy of cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia and pain (CBT-IP) compared to cognitive-behavioral therapy for pain (CBT-P) and usual medical care

Efficacy of multicomponent treatment in fibromyalgia syndrome: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled clinical trials.
TLDR
There is strong evidence that multicomponents treatment has beneficial short-term effects on the key symptoms of FMS and strategies to maintain the benefits of multicomponent treatment in the long term need to be developed.
Treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome with antidepressants: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Antidepressant medications are associated with improvements in pain, depression, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and health-related quality of life in patients with FMS.
Psychological pain treatment in fibromyalgia syndrome: efficacy of operant behavioural and cognitive behavioural treatments
TLDR
It is suggested that both OBT and CBT are effective in treating patients with FMS with some differences in the outcome measures specifically targeted by the individual treatments compared with an unstructured discussion group.
Efficacy of cognitive-behavioral intervention for juvenile primary fibromyalgia syndrome.
TLDR
CST can lead to improved functioning among JPFM patients, and although some of the improvement may be due to increased monitoring and attention, CST provides the specific benefit of improving adolescents' ability to cope with pain.
Efficacy of hydrotherapy in fibromyalgia syndrome--a meta-analysis of randomized controlled clinical trials.
TLDR
There is moderate evidence that hydrotherapy has short-term beneficial effects on pain and HRQOL in FMS patients and there is a risk to over-estimate the effects of hydroTherapy due to methodological weaknesses of the studies and to small trials included in meta-analysis.
Long-term efficacy of therapy in patients with fibromyalgia: a physical exercise-based program and a cognitive-behavioral approach.
TLDR
PE and CBT improve clinical manifestations in FM patients only for short periods of time, and improvement in self efficacy and physical fitness are not associated with improvement in clinical manifestations.
Behavioral insomnia therapy for fibromyalgia patients: a randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Cognitive-behavioral therapy represents a promising intervention for sleep disturbance in FM patients and larger clinical trials of this intervention with FM patients seem warranted.
Improving physical functional status in patients with fibromyalgia: a brief cognitive behavioral intervention.
TLDR
The data suggest that the inclusion of CBT to a standard medical regimen for FM can favorably influence physical functioning in a subset of patients.
Cognitive behavioral therapy for fibromyalgia
TLDR
Cognitive behavioral therapy, as a single treatment modality, does not offer any distinct advantage over well-planned group programs of education or exercise, or both, and its role in the management of fibromyalgia patients needs further research.
