We're discussing how to combine two evidence-based and effective methods for the treatment of chronic pain, which are Cognitive Functional Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. My expert guest is Mary Grant. Mary is a Senior Physiotherapist at the Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Disease Unit at Our Lady’s Hospice in Ireland where she's developed extensive skills in musculoskeletal rehabilitation with a particular emphasis on arthritis and persistent pain problems.
She's a guest lecturer at the University of College Dublin in the physiotherapy program where she trains student physiotherapists on the assessment and treatment of arthritis and has been involved in the development of a new program with Arthritis Ireland. In addition to her physiotherapy degree, Mary has also earned a Master's of Manual Therapy and has a keen interest in combining pain neuroscience education, Cognitive Functional Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for the treatment of chronic pain.
In this episode, you'll learn about the similarities, differences, and complementary approaches of Cognitive Functional Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, how they help people with persistent pain, and how physiotherapists can go about employing these methods and techniques in clinical practice. If you're interested in learning more about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and how you can combine it with other pain neuroscience education or Cognitive Functional Therapy, make sure to check out my latest book, Radical Relief: A Guide to Overcome Chronic Pain. It is available on Amazon. Inside, you'll learn all about ACT or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and how you can combine it with pain neuroscience education. Let's get ready and let's meet Mary Grant and learn about combining Cognitive Functional Therapy with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
