Role of behavioral therapy in pain management for children

What is the role of behavioral therapy in pain management for children?

Behavioral therapies are directed toward changing either children’s behaviors or the behaviors of the adults who respond to their pain. The therapeutic objective is to lessen behaviors that may increase children’s pain, distress, and disability, while increasing behaviors that may reduce pain, anxiety, and distress. The objective is to help children reduce their stress, increase their independent pain management, and increase their participation in school and social events to return them to full participation and enjoyment in activities of daily life.
