Section A reviews and critically evaluates the empirical literature on psychosocial interventions for multiple sclerosis (MS), the determinants of adjustment to MS, and the theoretical frameworks to account for these. Further, a conceptual and empirical review of the literature on narrative therapy is provided and an argument advanced for the utility of narrative therapy in facilitating adjustment to MS. Possible areas for further research are outlined.
