CAOT published an articled by a Queen’s MSc OT graduate, Bethany Stroh-Gingrich, titled “Occupational Therapy and Mindfulness Meditation: An Intervention For Persistent Pain”. This article discusses how OTs need to move beyond education and talking based therapies and move to also integrate mindfulness meditation into practice for chronic pain. The author argues that mindfulness meditation is holistic in practice as it  “…integrates the physical, cognitive, psychological and spiritual components and also fits a biopsychosocial approach to pain management” (Stroh-Gingrich, n.d.).
