Coping Skills Training for Adolescents With Fibromyalgia

Study:

Randomized Clinical Trial in Juvenile Fibromyalgia

Rationale:

n/a

Purpose:

Juvenile fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that can cause considerable suffering and difficulty in an adolescent`s day-to-day activities. The purpose of this study is to determine whether coping skills training, when combined with usual medical care, can reduce pain and disability in adolescents with fibromyalgia. Study hypotheses: 1) Adolescents who receive coping skills training combined with their usual medical care will show significantly greater reductions in functional disability, pain, and depressive symptoms at the end of the acute treatment phase than adolescents who receive fibromyalgia education with their usual medical care. 2) Adolescents who receive coping skills training with their usual medical care will show significantly lower levels of functional disability, pain, and depressive symptoms at the end of a six-month maintenance phase than adolescents who receive fibromyalgia education with their usual medical care.
