Background: review and comparison of the effect of therapy method of hinotherapy and short-term psychodynamic therapy on the quality of life of patients with chronic pain.
Methods: The current research is prospective, practical and experimental. The statistical population was all patients with chronic pain disorder in Tehran in 2019. Sampling was done in a purposive samplingand 60 people (20 people in each group (two experimental groups and one control group)) were selected from patients with chronic pain disorder and were randomly assigned into experimental and control groups. Short-term psychotherapy and hypnotherapy training was provided to the experimental group for 8 sessions; World Health Organization quality of life questionnaires,West Haven-Yale Multidimensional Pain Questionnaire, Waterloo Stanford Hypnotizability Questionnaire (1993), Dunlow's short-term psychodynamic therapy and Watson's hypnotherapy were used to collect information.
Results: The average difference of the physical health, mental health, social health and environmental health components of the quality of life in the pre-test-post-test and pre-test-follow-up stages was significant, but the difference of those averages in the post-test follow-up stages was not significant. Both methods of intervention have led to an increase in the average of the four components of the quality of life in the post-test and follow-up stages. Also, compared to hypnotherapy, short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy has increased the physical health components of quality of life (p=0.021), environmental health (p=0.032) and mental health (p=0.007).
Conclusion: Both short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy and hypnotherapy increase the quality of life in patients with chronic pain, but ShortTerm Dynamic Psychotherapy is more effective compared to hypnotherapy.
