9780199330041: Managing Your Child's Chronic Pain

"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..."

Studies suggest that as many as four out of ten children and adolescents suffer from chronic pain. The causes of chronic pain in young people vary, from illness-related causes to pain following medical procedures. In fact, in some children the cause of chronic pain is never explained.

Managing Your Child's Chronic Pain is an invaluable resource for parents who wish to learn how to help their children and families cope with persisting pain using cutting-edge, scientifically proven treatment tools and techniques. The easy-to-implement strategies in this book provide parents with practical instructions for pain management that will enable children to return to school, participate in sports and other activities, and pursue healthy and active social lives. 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.

This is the definitive work on the topic of managing children's pain that is a 'must-have' for parents and professionals who work with them." --Dennis D.

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Chronic pain is a significant health problem for many children and adolescents, with studies suggesting that as many as 15 to 40 of children suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain is puzzling for parents to understand because there is often not a clear diagnosis or treatment plan. 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), an effective intervention to treat children with chronic pain. With the easy-to-use psychological treatment strategies in this book, parents will have practical instructions in CBT for pain management. Authors Tonya M. Palermo and Emily F. Law, pediatric psychologists in the field of child and adolescent chronic pain, discuss the scientific foundation for chronic pain, information about the effectiveness of treatments, and several personal stories of parents and their children with chronic pain. They explain instructions for several different interventions including deep breathing, relaxation strategies, and sleep interventions to allow parents to support these skills with their children. The book concludes with guidance on how to prevent relapse, maintain improvements, and prevent future problems with pain and disability. The first book of its kind, Managing Your Child s Chronic Pain will empower parents to take a hands-on approach to relieving their child s pain. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780199330041
