Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is increasingly recognised as an intrinsically appropriate aspect of the treatment of many long-term medical problems. There is a strong evidence base for its use in reducing disability and distress in the context of chronic pain. A CBT approach to pain is often delivered via an in- or outpatient group pain management program, usually led by a clinical psychologist and supported by other disciplines. This chapter provides an introduction to the key ways in which CBT can be used in the treatment of someone with pain.
