Editor’s Note:  This study explores the use of Integrated Community Therapy (ICT) as a therapy for fibromyalgia. As described in the full text, ICT is a therapeutic model that emerged after World War II, when American social psychologist, Kurt Lewin, worked with a group of people for therapeutic purposes. He affirms that individuals feel therapeutic action when listening to people contextualize their problems and discuss how they can be solved.
 
ABSTRACT

METHOD

RESULTS
