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:

  1. Barriers to recovery
  2. 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.
