Research shows that chronic pain can have a major impact on the day-to-day lives of children and teens. Parents often struggle with how best to support their child or teen to function, despite ongoing pain. Children and teens with chronic pain and their families often feel alone and misunderstood.

This interactive webinar will provide guidelines for parents for helping their child or teen return to living a healthy life. These guidelines stem from research and the experiences of families living with chronic pain.

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  1. The ways in which chronic pain can impact the day-to-day lives of children and teens
  2. Guidelines for parents to help their child or teen live a healthy life, despite chronic pain
