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.

a single life-span. Philosophers, then, do not see more or know more, and they do not see less or know less. They aim to see less detail and more of the abstract. Their details, if you like, are abstractions. Walking on God’s earth as a pedestrian, as a farmer working his fields or as a passer-by, one’s picture of one’s surroundings is every bit as intelligent as that of the pilot riding the sky. The views of the field are radically different, however.
