New psychological intervention program shows promise in helping those with bowel diseases

re can be a lot of guilt involved."

Parents in the study commented that the new treatment intervention gave them a feeling of control for the first time. They understood that how they react to their child's pain can make that pain better or worse and they learned new skills to help their daughters cope.

"We were pleased to see that parents reported significant increases in their children's use of adaptive coping strategies when the children were in pain," said Blount.

The new study is a step forward from an original 10-week coping skills study done here earlier, though in that earlier study the small sample size and other variables led to limitations on how the results could be used.

According to the Children's Digestive Health and Nutrition Foundation, around a million Americans live with IBD, and a quarter of them are under 20 years old. Medical treatment regiments provide relief to many. The authors of this study believe there is a significant possibility that the new treatment will, in time, provide additional ways to help sufferers cope with the challenges that come with their disease.

"One surprise in our study was how quickly the participants were able to make a community and became sources of support for each other," said Reed-Knight. "They were able to share their experiences and then go home and continue that sense of community."

The next step will be to use a larger sample in the context of a randomized clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of the newly designed intervention for coping skills and decreasing symptoms in adolescents with IBD.
