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. Both methods of intervention have led to an decrease in the average of the four components of the psychological distress in the post-test and follow-up stages. Also, compared to hypnotherapy, short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy has increased the psychological distress of patients.
