Publisher's Summary

This is the foremost resource for parents and caregivers seeking ways to help their child increase comfort and overcome chronic pain.

Parents of a child in pain want nothing more than to offer immediate comfort. But children with chronic or recurring pain require much more. Parents need skills and strategies not only for increasing comfort but also for helping their child deal with an array of pain-related challenges, such as school disruption, sleep disturbance, and difficulties with peers.

This essential guide, written by an expert in pediatric pain management, is the practical, accessible, and comprehensive resource that families and caregivers have been waiting for. It offers in-the-moment strategies for managing a child’s pain along with expert advice for fostering long-term comfort.

Dr. Rachael Coakley, a clinical pediatric psychologist who works exclusively with families of children with chronic or recurrent pain, provides a set of research-proven strategies - some surprisingly counterintuitive - to achieve positive results quickly and lastingly. Whether the pain is disease related, the result of an injury or surgery, or caused by another condition or syndrome, this guide offers what every parent of a child in pain most needs: effective methods for reversing the cycle of chronic pain.

"This book is a unique resource." Gerard A. Banez, PhD, director of Pediatric Pain Rehabilitation Program, Cleveland Clinic

"What a truly wonderful book and a gift to families dealing with chronic pain and to the clinicians who care for them!" - Neil L. Schechter, MD, director of Chronic Pain Clinic, Boston Children's Hospital

"A priceless resource for parents of children who experience chronic pain." - Deirdre Logan, PhD, Harvard Medical School

Extremely helpful and eye-opening

I recommend this to all parents who have children with chronic pain. I just wish I would’ve read this a lot earlier in my child’s journey with chronic pain. The content allowed me to see and then understand what I was doing wrong. I thought I was making the best choices for my child as she tried to handle the chronic pain and also the mental health struggles that go along with it, but I wasn’t. My heartstrings and love for my child steered me in one direction but for the overall well-being of my child now looking back, I see I should have made decisions in a different direction. The author though gives so much grace and understanding and encouragement to the parent in helping them see some wrong choices they have made and how to correct them. Please if your child has chronic pain get this book.

MUST HAVE!

This book is absolute necessity for therapists who help with chronic pain, chronic illness, & PTSD as well as parents of kids in pain..no matter the reason, no matter the length of time. This book quadrupled, at minimum, my bag of tricks. Very empowering for parents & kids!!
