Adults tend either to make a huge fuss about children's pain or dismiss it. The coordinator of psychological services for the department of pediatric oncology at Babies and Children's Hospital at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City, Gorfinkle helps parents and other caretakers find a balance between these two reactions by explaining what pain is and how parents can best alleviate both the physical and the emotional symptoms. Gorfinkle offers suggestions and techniques to help assess and treat children's pain, including ailments such as headaches, abdominal pain, and teething, as well as ways to prepare children for procedures such as immunizations and to help them develop coping skills. Conventional medications and alternative therapies are both discussed, as is the importance of parental attitudes toward pain. Recommended for health collections.?Anne C.
