Over the last few years a growing body of research has demonstrated that mindfulness-based interventions are associated with an enhancement of psychological well-being.
Nineteen chronic pain patients without any prior meditative experience attending a psychological self-help group were asked to practice mindfulness as adjuvant therapy and were included in the present study. The self-help group is a group where people gather together, they tell their stories, share their experiences and their diseases in order to provide support for each other and to try to overcome their problems. Our self-help patients group is composed by some outpatients of our pain unit that, in a completely voluntary way, accepted to adhere to this kind of support.
This group is supported by a non-profit association, open to all chronic pain patients, with the aim to give psychological support and to improve self-efficacy for managing pain. All the enrolled patients provided written informed consent.
