Project: The social function of pain catastrophizing in children and adolescents

project duration
01-OCT-03 – 30-SEP-08
This project aims at investigating the sociale function of pain catastrophizing in children. Both questionnaire- and experimental studies will investigate, in school children and children with chronic pain, whether children who catastrophize about pain (1) show more pain behaviour, (2) have parents who are more empathically accurate for their child's pain experience and (3) whether these parents are more supportive.
