Chronic pain is a significant health problem for many children and adolescents and is often challenging for healthcare professionals to treat. Estimated to affect approximately 15% to 30% of children, chronic and recurrent pain occurs most commonly in the pediatric population without clearly identifiable underlying physical etiology, such as pain associated with irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, musculoskeletal pain, or complex regional pain syndrome. Chronic or recurrent pain may also be associated with ongoing underlying medical conditions, such as arthritis, cancer, Crohn's disease, or sickle cell disease. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Chronic Pain in Children and Adolescents provides a practical guide for implementing cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for children and their families coping with the consequences of persisting pain. The book is divided into three sections. The first section presents a brief history, theoretical foundations, and background concerning the development of CBT interventions for children with chronic pain conditions and summarizes research results on the efficacy of CBT. Chapters in the second section cover assessment and evaluation approaches, patient education, and how to structure and sequence CBT interventions with children and families. The last section of the book describes in detail each cognitive-behavioral intervention, including relaxation and cognitive skills and interventions directed at parents, sleep problems, physical activity, and school functioning. Extensive suggested dialogue and detailed instructions and handouts are included in the text and accompanying appendices to provide user-friendly therapist training materials for successful application of clinical techniques to children and families. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Chronic Pain in Children and Adolescents is an essential, evidence-based resource for pediatric and child clinical psychologists and other mental health professionals (social workers, child psychiatrists) who work with children in pain.

Reviews

"With that all too rare combination of extremely careful scholarship and very practical information, Dr. Palermo has provided the field with an excellent, much-needed, and comprehensive text containing state-of-the-art information about the etiology and treatment of chronic pain in children. Highly recommended!"-- Rona L. Levy, M.S.W., Ph.D., M.P.H., Professor and Director, Behavioral Medicine Research Group, University of Washington "This is a terrific book, comprehensive, evidence-based, and well-organized, with chapters ranging from the theoretical to the practical. Palermo treats the issue of pediatric pain with the intellectual rigor of a renowned scientist and the sensitivity of an experienced clinician. This book will be useful for pediatric psychologists as well as for the many other health care professionals - nurses, social workers, physicians, occupational therapists - who are integral to the care of youth with chronic pain. It will be an essential reference for a wide range of subspecialty clinics that treat youth with chronic pain in our Children's Hospital- gastroenterology, rheumatology, neurology, and adolescent medicine, to name a few."-- Lynn Walker, Professor of Pediatrics and Director of the Division of Adolescent Medicine, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine "At last!
