    Abstract

    Arthritis affects millions of people in the UK and is a major cause of physical disability. The precise aetiology of arthritis is unknown and a cure remains to be identified. Current treatment provides less than optimal relief for many people with this painful condition. Psychological interventions are usually aimed at enhancing self-management skills, promoting pain relief and increasing or maintaining functional ability.
