    Default Helping Young Kids in Pain

    Hello to all parents of little children!

    My name is Candice Loopstra and I am a psychologist currently completing my Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. My thesis is investigating how parents help young kids cope with pain.Young children rely on their parents to work out how best to help them cope with a painful event. At present, we know little about how parents help their children cope with pain and why they engage in these strategies.
    The purpose of this study is to investigate how parents help young children cope with acute (intense but temporary) pain and distress generally (e.g., fingers caught in a door, falling over) and during medical procedures (e.g., immunization needle, intravenous [IV] catheter insertion, nasogastric tube insertion).

    I also hope to investigate the factors that shape the way parents help their young children cope with pain. For example, interpersonal style, how they manage stressful situations, or a child’s temperament.

    I strongly believe that parents have a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to helping their kids cope with pain; a wealth not often tapped into in medical contexts. I hope to use the knowledge and understanding parents inherently have or have learnt over time, in the context of acute pain in a variety of situations.

    Participation involves completing a 30 minute survey online. I appreciate that busy parents dont often have 30 minutes to themselves, let alone for a survey. But, I would very much appreciate the time taken to complete the survey because it would contribute to us helping parents help their children in the best possible way when it comes to pain.

    The survey link is: http://survey.qut.edu.au/survey/173393/1703/

    Thank you very much and feel free to contact me with any comments or queries
