Hi:
 
We are a research team based at King's College London and Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Trust.
 
This is a project organised by researchers from King’s College London and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. It is hoped that this study can improve our understanding of the methods that can potentially be used to help people with chronic abdominal pain.
 
Psychological treatments like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), have been used in gastrointestinal conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease, and appeared beneficial for some people in terms of reducing gastrointestinal symptoms, and improving functioning and quality of life in the long run. However, it is unknown if CBT will be beneficial for people with chronic abdominal pain. To find out, we can examine the association between the psychological processes underlying the treatment model and functioning in people with chronic abdominal pain, which in turn, can suggest the potential utility of this form of treatment for the management of chronic abdominal pain. 
 
This study investigates the associations between several therapeutic processes and functioning in people with chronic abdominal pain, which will inform the development of a psychological treatment for people with abdominal pain.
 
We are looking for adult participants who have been having continuous or intermittent abdominal pain or discomfort for at least 6 months. 
 
Your participation will involve completing a set of questionnaires that measure pain, gastrointestinal symptoms, mood, daily functioning, and psychological processes underlying the treatment model.
 
Your participation will take about 30 minutes, and you will be contributing to the development of psychological treatments that will potentially be beneficial for people with chronic abdominal pain.

If you have any questions regarding the project, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the research team via email.

In case anyone has tried to fill out the questionnaires, there was a technical issue with the question "Year of education", where the system might invalidate your answer no matter what. This has now been fixed. I am sorry about trouble. I would like to invite you to fill out the questionnaires again. Thanks very much!
