Research: Relationship Between Behavioural Coping Strategies and Acceptance in Patients With Fibromyalgia Syndrome

By Baltasar Rodero, Benigno Casanueva, Juan V Luciano, Margalida Gili, Antoni Serrano-Blanco, Javier García-Campayo

“The main conclusion of the present study is that the coping-behaviours strategies often targeted within treatments have not been shown to be related to outcomes as predicted. Additionally, acceptance measures may offer more utility in guiding treatment. It seems wise, therefore, for targets of intervention to focus not only on what the clients must accomplish but also on how one can encourage them to accomplish the necessary tasks. Acceptance-based interventions seem to promote a motivational context that makes it easier for the client to move forward. There are ongoing studies in this area trying to re-appraise some of the coping responses defined as adaptive within current psychological frameworks.[44–46] Additional research is needed to clarify the processes underlying the acceptance-based strategies.”
