Chronic pain affects up to 40 percent of children and adolescents worldwide. It can result in negative consequences, including reductions in children’s physical and psychosocial functioning and high health care use. The risk for continued pain and the impact of childhood chronic pain on health and development in adulthood are emerging areas of research. Psychological interventions delivered in childhood may help to prevent pain and disability and build resiliency across the lifespan.
