Chase Pain Away – Recurrent Headache/Abdominal Pain

Chase Pain Away

In our Chase Pain Away (CPA) program (ages 9-16), our goal is to help you or your child learn to deal with recurrent headaches, stomach pain, or both, that is not related to underlying anxiety. This program offers one-on-one weekly coaching at a schedule that best suits your family’s needs. You’ll receive a handbook, a pain diary, information on understanding various kinds of pain, and media to better help you learn effective skills to help manage your or your child’s pain.

In this program, we will review your pain dairy weekly and how it is best used to understand the patterns of pain as they relate to your child. Each week, you will read through the program materials to learn new skills to help your child. You will help your child understand pain, why it happens and any triggers that may be causing them as well as encourage and support your child. It will include information on the importance of exercise, diet and pain medication management. Your Coach will help support you and answer any questions you have. With the commitment from you, your child and your Coach, you will see results.  This program is available in English and French.

Each Week You Will:

  • Participate in weekly telephone calls to review the material
  • Help and encourage your child to complete weekly exercises
  • Ensure your child fills out their pain diary daily
  • Practice the skills with your child daily
  • Encourage your child to use their skills when they are in pain

Each Week We Will:
