Reem Muhza Ali Alharbi, Areej Abdullah Mohmmad Abdulwahed.


Abstract
The long-term condition known as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) severely reduces bodily, emotional, and psychological functioning. Hence, the need of psychological interventions is important to improve the quality of life and reduce symptoms. For instance, this review aimed to explain the role psychological interventions in reducing symptoms and improving quality of life in rheumatoid arthritis patients. A thorough search was carried out in November 2023, mostly using PubMed, in compliance with PRISMA criteria. The search was limited to English-language research that looked at the effect of psychological interventions on rheumatoid arthritis patients. To guarantee the quality and applicability of the evaluated research, certain inclusion and exclusion criteria were developed. A wide spectrum of research from various countries and areas was included in the study, without any focus on a specific age. A discernible pattern indicated a high proportion of individuals with effect of psychological interventions in long term condition. According to the findings of the current investigation, there is confirmed evidence to prove the positive effect of psychological interventions on rheumatoid conditions.

Key words: Psychological interventions, behavior, rheumatoid arthritis, cognitive behavioral therapy, quality of life.
