Summary "Madeline is a 15-year-old girl with abdominal pain and headaches that occur most days of the week. Because of her pain, she has missed 99 days of school this year and is no longer able to play volleyball. Her parents have taken her to see a number of specialists and she has tried many different medications but she has not experienced any improvement in her pain ..." Chronic pain is a significant health problem for many children and adolescents, with studies suggesting that as many as 40% of children suffer from chronic pain. Unfortunately, many families cannot get the help they need because they live too far from children's hospitals with pediatric pain clinics, where most healthcare providers in this specialized area are based. Managing Your Child's Chronic Pain is a resource for parents to learn how to help their children and families cope with persisting pain using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). The easy-to-do psychological treatment strategies in this resource provide parents with practical instructions in CBT for pain management. With guidance on how to prevent relapse, maintain improvements, and prevent future problems with pain and disability, Managing Your Child's Chronic Pain will empower parents to take a hands-on approach to relieving their child's pain"-- Provided by publisher
