Although stress (defined as the subjective experience of physical, emotional, or psychological demands outweighing resources) does not cause gastrointestinal (GI) conditions, it can both contribute to and result from GI symptoms. The aim of this chapter is to provide information about stress management (SM) and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) as treatment for patients with GI conditions.
