Chapter 11 provides supplemental material for teens whose chronic illness challenges involve major problems with chronic pain. While pain is a necessary protective mechanism of the body, chronic pain involves complex interactions between the nervous system, the brain, our emotions, and various situational factors that can actually make our experience of pain worse. The activities in this session are intended to help teens better understand these interactions and apply pain management strategies. Many of the coping strategies in the Children’s Health and Illness Recovery Program (CHIRP) have been shown to be effective in helping teens manage chronic pain more effectively so that they are able to more actively participate in the multiple areas so important to development.
