Cognitive-behavioural Interventions in Pediatric Chronic Illness Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper provides an overview of cognitive-behavioural interventions in pediatric behavioural medicine. Although the literature so far is sparse, the contribution of cognitive-behavioural therapy is reviewed in the areas of pediatric cancer, asthma, and diabetes mellitus. The future potential of cognitive-behavioural therapy for the management of other chronic conditions, including cystic fibrosis and rheumatoid arthritis, is recommended.
