Exposure for (E)Motions1 : A DBT inspired exposure treatment for people with chronic low back pain (English)
Abstract [sv]

SammanfattningLångvarig smärta orsakar stort lidande för individen och belastar samhället ekonomiskt. Syftet med denna uppsats var att undersöka om en exponering in vivo-behandling inspirerad av Dialektisk beteendeterapi (DBT) för människor med långvarig ländryggssmärta var görbar samt om behandlingen gav effekt på smärtrelaterad problematik. Designen var en single case experimental design vilket är en beprövad design för att testa nya terapimetoder. Studien bestod av sex deltagare, alla med hög grad av smärtrelaterade katastroftankar, något som litteraturen visat predicera sämre behandlingsutfall. Behandlingen var DBT-inspirerad och indelad i tre faser; en första valideringsfas, en andra färdighetsfas och en tredje exponeringsfas. Fem av sex deltagare fick förbättringar på alla de primära utfallsmått, tre av sex deltagare fick förbättringar på samtliga primära- och sekundära utfallsmått. Framtida replikationer är motiverade.

Abstract [en]

AbstractChronic pain causes great suffering for the individual and burden society economically. The aim of this study was to examine whether an exposure in vivo treatment inspired by Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for people with chronic low back pain was feasible and whether the treatment had effect on pain-related problems. The design was a single case experimental design, which is a widely used design to test new therapy methods. The study consisted of six participants, all with high levels of pain catastrophizing, something that in the literature been linked to poor treatment outcomes. The treatment was inspired by DBT and divided into three phases: an initial validation phase, a second phase for skills training and a third exposure phase. The results were promising: five out of six participants had improved in all primary outcome measures. Three out of six participants had improvements in all primary and secondary outcome measures. Future replications are warranted.
