Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Chronic pain impacts multiple aspects of an individual’s life, including participation in meaningful occupations. Mindfulness techniques such as yoga, meditation, journaling, and variations on mindfulness-based stress-reduction (MBSR) programs have been shown to positively affect the relationship an individual has with chronic pain, thereby increasing opportunities for participation in meaningful occupations.
