The role of fathers functioning in pediatric pain rehabilitation
Parent factors (e.g. parent distress, protective responses) assume an important role in the course and treatment of pediatric chronic pain (Sieberg et al, 2011; Logan et al, 2012); however, father specific functioning is underrepresented in the literature (Macfadyen et al, 2011). The purpose of the current study is to address this disparity by exploring father functioning in the context of a pediatric pain rehabilitation program.
