Exploring Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for children and young people with CFS/ME who are still unwell at 12 months
This study is looking at the views of children and young people (11-17 years old) with CFS/ME who are still experiencing debilitating symptoms after 12 months.
We are exploring the views of children, their parents and their healthcare professionals to better understand:
- Barriers to recovery
- Acceptability and feasibility of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
This has informed the subsequent study ExFACTR (Exploring the acceptability and Feasibility of ACT for children with CFS/ME) which will recruit patients to receive ACT.
Recruitment will start early in 2021 and we will explore the acceptability.
