Little is known about the effectiveness of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) in youth, partly due to insufficient methodological rigor in related studies. OBJECTIVE: The primary purpose of the present study was to examine the feasibility, acceptability, and effectiveness of MBSR for a treatment-seeking sample of youth with chronic pain...

The aim of this study is to review the options available for assessing sleep in pediatric chronic pain populations. One subjective measure of sleep (questionnaires) and two objective measures (polysomnography and actigraphy) were reviewed.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the construct validity and responsiveness to change of 7 PROMIS domains for the assessment of children (ages: 8-18) with chronic pain--Pain Interference, Fatigue, Anxiety, Depression, Mobility, Upper Extremity Function, and Peer Relationships...

The current study aimed to validate the child and parent pain catastrophizing scale in a large chronic pain sample and to identify child pain catastrophizing clinical reference points.

The measure's psychometric properties were examined, as were relations across demographic, pain, and psychological characteristics and pain catastrophizing...
