ABSTRACT

Emotional state is common in patients with multiple sclerosis(MS). Depression and anxiety are dimensions of emotional state that adversely affect quality of life and medication adherence. Recent investigations indicate that psychosocial interventions, such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), could improve quality of life, depression and anxiety in MS patients. The objective of this article is to investigate the results of various studies, for identifying the potential efficacy of ACT as it could be applied as useful method of intervention for improving psychological symptoms in patients with Multiple Sclerosis. The result of several researches has shown that ACT could potentially be highly appropriate intervention for different type of problems associated with this disease.
