A Comparative Study of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Shared Reading for Chronic Pain

Comparing Shared Reading – The Reader’s literature-based intervention – to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as an intervention for chronic pain sufferers.

The investigation explores:

  1. the degree to which CBT and Shared Reading offer alternative treatment methods for alleviating the psychological symptoms of chronic pain
  2. how far Shared Reading might complement CBT by providing less programmatic and potentially more long-term follow-up to CBT.
