Abstract Summary: From the chapter - The present chapter provides a review of the history of psychological interventions for chronic pain and how developments within clinical psychology more broadly have been specifically integrated into chronic pain settings up to the more recently developed 'third wave approaches' (Hayes, 2004), of which ACT and mindfulnessbased approaches are prominent examples... In addition to an overview of how the history of psychologically based interventions has contributed to ACT and related approaches, the chapter has a number of other purposes. First, key treatment processes targeted for change within ACT will be reviewed, as will methods for measuring a subset of these processes. Evidence with regard to the effectiveness of ACT for chronic pain will be reviewed. The chapter concludes with a brief discussion of two specific clinical issues.
