Summary of "It hurts to move (on): A family's experience with chronic pain, grief, and healing."

This article describes a family that had to deal with grief from losing a family member. They sought help for 13-yr-old Katie's prolonged pain following a sprain. The family's unresolved grief over their second child's passing continued to emerge, peeping through the small talk, the wry smiles, the daily efforts to move and do, despite physical pain. As the demands of Katie's rehabilitation stripped away reserves of politeness and energy, the family's emotional pain became more fully uncovered.The author describes the 6-week course of physical and occupational therapies, pain medicine management, and individual and family behavioral health support. In this period of family crisis, the author was their partner, coach, advocate, and confidante. (PsycINFO Database Record
