dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study is to investigate relationships between daily practice of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), coping strategies, acceptance of chronic pain and satisfaction with life for individuals living with chronic pain. Eighty-one participants, with 59 meeting eligibility criteria, (14 males and 45 females) were recruited using a snowball sampling method (N=59). A quantitative, correlational study design was employed and participants completed an online self-report questionnaire measuring three scales, Coping Strategies Questionnaire-Revised (CSQ-R), Chronic Pain Acceptance Questionnaire-Revised (CPAQ-R), and Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS). Correlational and regression analysis was carried out and results showed significant relationships between the number of ACT exercises practiced per day and coping-self statements and the number of ACT exercises practiced per day and catastrophizing. Furthermore, significant relationships were found between number of ACT exercises per day and activity engagement, pain willingness and satisfaction with life. Limitations and implications for future research are discussed.en
