This clinical trial compares two psychological treatments for back pain.

Study summary:

The primary objective is to examine the incremental efficacy of a patient-centered and tailored self-management treatment approach, Tailored Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (TCBT), for persons with chronic musculoskeletal pain. TCBT will be compared with a Standard Cognitive- Behavior Therapy (SCBT) condition. The hypothesis is that TCBT will be associated with improved outcomes following treatment. Outcome will be assessed by multiple standardized measures of key domains of the chronic pain experience. Secondary objectives are to examine the process of successful self-management treatment.
