Imaging circles of engagement: Neural correlates of parent empathic distress in the context of chronic pain

Project description

Supporting parents to support children in cases of chronic pain

Chronic pain in young patients affects not only the patients themselves but also their caregivers. Parents of children with chronic pain are more likely to suffer from stress, anxiety or depression as a result of seeing their child suffer. On the other hand, their response can be pivotal for their child’s pain-related functioning. The EU-funded PARENT_EMPATHY project is studying the neural mechanisms underlying parent empathic distress and its impact. The project includes a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study aiming to understand parent–child interactions in the context of paediatric pain and develop innovative parent-targeted treatments.
