The aim of this research was to examine the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy on patients with Chronic Tension Type Headache referred from an acute medical setting. This study also aimed to examine the impact of therapy on other areas known to be implicated in the maintenance of chronic pain conditions. Results have shown that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is useful in reducing a number of aspects of chronic tension type headache. Additional changes in more general psychological measures over time suggest that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy also successfully addresses issues that may mediate the experience of chronic pain.
