Chronic pain is a debilitating condition that disrupts engagement in meaningful occupations. Self-efficacy may be a protective factor in reducing pain-related disability and promoting effective chronic pain management. After participating in the 8-week Merging Yoga and Self-Management Skills program, dyads with chronic pain reported increased self-efficacy of varying degrees. Significant improvement in self-efficacy related to physical function was reported.
