Professional Dossier Presented in the Professional Dossier are three linked reports which together lead to a number of recommendations for the involvement of significant others in a Pain Management Group Programme (PMGP). These reports contain: (1) a content analysis of responses to a questionnaire eliciting anonymous feedback from patients completing the PMGP with resulting changes in clinical practice. One suggestion was for the involvement of significant others in the PMGP. (2) A survey of current practice in the UK regarding the involvement of significant others in PMGPs which revealed problems with low attendance and (3) a qualitative study using interpretative phenomenological analysis with 12 partners of patients completing a PMGP to examine possible reasons for non-attendance and to identify key issues which could be considered when planning how best to involve partners in pain management. Academic Dossier Psychological Approaches to Non-Cardiac Chest Pain Qualitative Research Methods and Psychological Understanding of Chronic Pain Research Dossier "Control Cognitions in Pain Management Group Programme Participants: Self-Efficacy versus Locus of Control Beliefs" The aims of this research were: To examine whether pain-specific self-efficacy (SE) and locus of control (LOC) beliefs independently co-vary with concurrent levels of pain intensity, disability and distress, and whether changes in SE and LOC beliefs independently co-vary with post-treatment changes in pain intensity, disability and distress.
