Reviews

Named a 2016 National Parenting Product Award (NAPPA) winner
"Parents of kids with chronic pain, as much or more than other patient populations, want to know what concretely they can do to help their kids. With its focus on psychological techniques, teaching vignettes, and workbook strategies, this book is a unique resource."-Gerard A. Banez, Ph.D., Program Director, Pediatric Pain Rehabilitation Program, Cleveland Clinic
"What a truly wonderful book and a gift to families dealing with chronic pain and to the clinicians who care for them! Dr. Coakley's extensive knowledge base, deep clinical experience, and personal warmth and compassion are evident on every page."-Neil L. Schechter, M.D., Director, Chronic Pain Clinic, Boston Children's Hospital
"Dr. Coakley's book is a superb roadmap and guide for parents of children and adolescents with chronic pain. Her tone and message will resonate with parents from a very broad array of backgrounds and parenting styles. Just the right balance of contemporary research, evidence for what works, and down-to-earth, practical guidance. Simply the best book on this subject for parents."-Charles Berde, M.D., Ph.D., Chief of Pain Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital

"Dr. Coakley has developed a priceless resource for parents of children who experience chronic pain. Writing from her own considerable experience with these parents and children she offers accessible information to help parents understand chronic pain and guide their children toward a return to their normal, active lives. Through stories of real children and parents who have conquered chronic pain, step by step explanations of research-based tools and approaches to managing pain, and concrete resources, she offers parents all the tools they need to help their children feel less stress and more comfort. The book helps parents to take a much needed step back from focusing on pain alone, to see this problem in the context of not only the whole child but also the important systems-family, school, peers-that play crucial roles in both children's experiences of chronic pain and their recovery from it. Dr. Coakley brings all available resources to bear upon the goal of helping children manage chronic pain and describes these resources in clear, useful ways that will undoubtedly help parents feel less helpless and more effective in parenting a child with chronic pain or medical stress."-Deirdre Logan, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School
