About This Resource

The Comfort Ability Program helps kids, teens and parents or caregivers learn how to better manage chronic pain problems such as headache, abdominal pain, nerve pain, joint pain, disease related pain, post-surgical pain, or any other kind of ongoing pain. The program teaches how pain works in the body and why skills rooted in psychology can help. It also gives kids and parents the chance to learn and practice many proven coping skills based in cognitive behavioral therapy.

The Comfort Ability Program offers workshops, health chats, newsletters, and other resources for teens and parents. The workshops take place at many sites throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia. It was developed by an amazing team led by Dr. Rachel Coakley at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Kids, teens, and parents.
