The study found that participants completing this brief intervention protocol showed significant declines in IBS symptoms and substantial improvements in quality of life. Those gains were also maintained at the 3-month follow-up.
Further, the study found that treatment efficacy was partially mediated by reductions in the tendency to catastrophize the social and occupational implications of IBS symptoms, suggesting that catastrophizing may be an important target for treatment.
