Program Description

About 1 in 5 youth develop persistent pain during childhood and benefit from biopsychosocial pain management approaches. However, access to skilled mental health clinicians in the community who are comfortable providing psychological treatments for chronic pain is limited, leading to disparities in treatment access. To address this need, this workshop will provide the groundwork to apply psychological approaches for pain management when working with children, teens, and young adults. Issues related to disparities in pain management for underserved populations will also be discussed.


Workshop Objectives

  1. Discuss evidence supporting the use of psychological approaches for the treatment of pediatric chronic pain.
  2. Identify at least 3 core components of cognitive-behavioral or acceptance-based psychological treatment for youth presenting with persistent pain.
  3. Discuss common myths and biases related to pain in underserved populations and how these relate to poorer pain management outcomes in these groups
