Chronic pain and associated disability is a serious problem for a significant number of adolescents. Individuals who parent an adolescent with chronic pain report high levels of impaired psychological and social functioning. Parents of adolescents with chronic pain face unique parenting challenges. Typically, treatment of adolescent chronic pain does not specifically focus on managing parental functioning and behaviour. The relationship between parental functioning/behaviour and adolescent outcomes is complex and not yet fully understood.
