Working With Clients With Multiple Sclerosis

Pearl B. Werfel, PhD, and Linda J. Trettin, PhD

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a complex, unpredictable, and chronic neurologic disorder that can affect numerous bodily systems and result in minimal symptoms or in significant disability. There is no known cause or cure. The role of the mental health professional has been well recognized in evidenced-based treatment of individuals living with MS. There is no definitive psychological theory or treatment. However, a multimodal approach that includes the management of stress, fatigue, pain, cognitive deficits, and psychological diagnoses is recommended. This approach also works toward increasing resilience and ability to self-manage symptoms, building a viable healthcare and wellness plan, and strengthening interpersonal relationships.
