Introduction

Children who have chronic pain might experience adverse physical, emotional, social and academic outcomes. A multi-tiered approach is essential to effectively treat these children. The central goals of treatment are to teach children to identify what provokes their pain and to learn self-management strategies. This course begins by describing the Protectometer which helps children distinguish between feelings of danger and safety. Once a child is able to discern their thoughts and feelings, interventions can be implemented to facilitate self-management.

Aims

This course aims to provide therapists with techniques to help children manage chronic pain.
