There is a firm tradition of cognitive behavioral programs for chronic pain and structured treatments for training coping skills have been relatively successful with motivated and cooperative participants. However, what is being trained generally comes down to component skills and ways of thinking that have to be used by the client in complex real life situations. The aim of this paper is to illustrate how the principles of Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) can be applied in a group therapy program for people with chronic pain, using genuine in vivo occurrences of pain-related or stress-maintaining interpersonal behaviors of the participants during the group interaction. Functional analytic case conceptualizations of two participants with treatment resistant chronic pain are presented. The use of FAP-informed strategies during complex exchanges in the group is shown by means of vignettes. It is argued that FAP offers a way to make group therapy more relevant for real life problems and more effective for some people with treatment resistant pain. Key words: FAP; group therapy; chronic pain.
