12/12/2011; 55 minutes

Mind-body skills and self-regulation can provide great benefit to children who suffer from headache or migraines, digestive upset, anxiety, procedure-related pain, chronic pain, bed-wetting or other chronic conditions. Dr. David Becker, UCSF Pediatrics, discusses how mind-body approaches can benefit children across different developmental stages, from infancy to the teen years. In addition to reviewing some of the latest research, he provides tips on practical and day-to-day applications and addresses the importance of adjusting the technique to the child's needs. (#22854)
