Abstract

Cognitive and behavioral techniques (CBT) are used in the approach of chronic pain, based on the assumption that pain and disability are not (only) influenced by somatic issues but also by psychosocial factors. CBT aim to improving quality of life while targeting disability. Psychoeducation, activity-centered and cognitive techniques are central, drawing on the identification of an activity that is not only important and meaningful for the patient but also realistic. This should allow the patient to overcome the impossibility to function « as before » while figuring out how to cope « as for now ». The ways to explore possible alternative options during the group therapy is presented and discussed.
