Treating Long Term Conditions and Pain with CBT

Go Back


There is a significant proportion of the population (approximately 12 million in the UK), that have long term conditions, with symptoms that can be treated, but are likely to persist. Common symptoms include pain, fatigue, breathlessness and other unpleasant experiences. Some people will have no medical explanation, and for others, there will be a recognised cause and diagnosis. The impact of living with a long-term condition extends to occupational, social, and interpersonal functioning in addition to the psychological impact of having unpleasant symptoms. People with long term conditions have often experienced multiple physical treatments without success before being referred for psychological therapies.

This workshop aims to consider knowledge and skills for working with people who have long term conditions, with an emphasis on persistent pain; using evidence-based cognitive-behavioural interventions. We will consider skills which can be used to help people to learn to self-manage, and opportunities to practice assessment, formulation and engagement techniques, as well as interventions. Case examples will be used, and participants will be encouraged to bring their own experiences and cases to discuss, as well as to participate in small group work and role play exercises.
