Online Chronic Pain Therapy for Adults
Online Chronic Pain Therapy for Adults
This study will evaluate the usefulness of an online, self-directed treatment for chronic pain that has been designed specifically for individuals who are currently or have previously served in the military.
This study will evaluate the efficacy of an eight-module, online, self-directed treatment for chronic pain using Acceptance-Based Behavioural Therapy (ABBT) as the treatment modality. The online modules are tailored to the unique issues of individuals with a military background. The modules will be delivered via the WebCAPSI Therapy program, an online, password-protected program that allows participants to anonymously progress through all modules at their own pace. ABBT modules cover the following: Introduction, Acceptance, Values, Cognitive Defusion, Mindfulness, Exercise/Pacing/Communication Skills, Self-as-Context, and Willingness. Modules encourage understanding of the information through audio files, military-specific vignettes, written materials, and homework exercises. Modules are designed to be completed in 60 minutes or less. Participants will have access to the online treatment for a three month period and will be encouraged to complete one module per week.
