Description

Childhood pain affects everyone!

Childhood pain affects everyone, whether in your capacity as a clinician or as a parent, no one can escape its impact on children and the adults they become.

Josh will be talking about

  • How a child conceptualises pain, and what influences their concept of pain
  • How a child’s concept of pain can be assessed, and how it can be targeted using the Concept of Pain Inventory (COPI) with pain science education
  • Results of a Single Case Experimental Design (SCED) study of children reading a sham and ‘real’ educational book
  • An introduction to new resources – children’s books, audiobooks, online platforms

Josh’s PhD focused on how to assess the way that a child thinks about pain. In recent years, Joshua has been working as a university academic at UTS (Australia). Josh’s research is now heading into schools. He has a series of children’s books coming out soon, each covers a key idea about the science of pain.

Millions have seen his TED-Ed online animations about pain: https://www.ted.com/talks/joshua_w_pate_the_mysterious_science_of_pain?language=en

Recently he ran a Single Case Experimental Design (SCED) study, where children read sham and ‘real’ books about the science of pain.

Josh can’t wait to share his recent findings with you!
