It is effectively facilitated by an experienced and knowledgable therapist (sufferer of fibromyalgia), with the help of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). This teaches members about the power of self accepting, acceptance of the illness, commitment and determination.Members learn to turn off the tap of self-pity and turn on the fountain of inner strength (self acceptance).
