Abstract:

The most effective treatment for pain is compassion and caring, not drugs, says psychologist and father Gorfinkle, because pain is felt in the heart, soul, and mind. How to treat pain, how to talk about it, and how to alleviate it are the foci of this guide. Painful events in a child's life, such as teething, colic, immunizations, and dental care, require specific approaches utilizing such techniques as empathy, distraction, relaxation, imagery, and rituals. Offering a stimulating mixture of scientific research, professional experience, and case studies, Gorfinkle's readable guide usefully collects information about and solutions to one of life's more mysterious and distressing parental experiences.

HEALTH Adults tend either to make a huge fuss about children's pain or dismiss it. The coordinator of psychological services for the department of pediatric oncology at Babies and Children's Hospital at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City, Gorfinkle helps parents and other caretakers find a balance between these two reactions by explaining what pain is and how parents can best alleviate both the physical and the emotional symptoms. Gorfinkle offers suggestions and techniques to help assess and treat children's pain, including ailments such as headaches, abdominal pain, and teething, as well as ways to prepare children for procedures such as immunizations and to help them develop coping skills. Conventional medications and alternative therapies are both discussed, as is the importance of parental attitudes toward pain.
