This research explores what self-compassion means for individuals who have taken part in a compassion focused intervention for chronic pain. The background highlights the prevalence of chronic pain and how it can be difficult to treat effectively given its complex and unique nature. The relevance self-compassion may hold for chronic pain is considered from an embodied perspective, based on existing research that emphasises the interconnected nature of the body and the mind. A review of the literature identifies a significant lack of research that explores the experience of self-compassion for individuals who live with chronic pain and particularly for those who have experienced a compassion focused intervention. This is despite an established body of quantitative literature that has tested the construct of self-compassion and its relationship to pain.
