Unique in the field, this book provides specific language that will help children manage the full spectrum of the pain experience, both on a sensory and an emotional level. The volume spells out clearly what the professional, the parent, the child, and the team together, can do to ease the pain itself and uncover the resources to support management and recovery. There are important discussions on: responding to a child s pain medications to relieve pain visiting the doctor preparation for the hospital pain management at home going to the dentist and more. Indispensable for the range of caregivers--whether parent, nurse, psychotherapist, or other significant adult--the book imparts the necessary knowledge for a sensitive, effective response repertoire that can be applied across settings.
