    Abstract Hypnosis is a modified state of consciousness which showed its benefits to decrease different symptoms, mainly pain. During the last decade, this technique has also been proposed to adults with cancer to improve other symptoms, such as emotional distress, fatigue, or sleep difficulties. In pediatric oncology, hypnosis is also used to decrease disease-, treatment-, and procedure-related pain and anxiety. The learning of self-hypnosis and self-care techniques also improves the well-being of adults or children with cancer, their parents, and their siblings. Through several clinical cases, we will illustrate how hypnosis and self-care techniques have been implemented in the pediatric haemato-oncology… More >

    Abstract Children treated in oncology experience recurrent procedural pain and anxiety. To overcome this difficulty, an original intervention was implemented in a pediatric oncology department. This article describes this group dedicated to the parents, coanimated by a clown-actor and a professional caregiver of the actor. The theme of this group is the distraction of the child especially at the moment of nursing care or medical examinations. The authors highlight the strengths of this group: emphasize parental skills, pleasure to play, cocreation of a space of distraction.

    Parental Overprotection in the Context of Pediatric Cancer: State of the Art

    La surprotection parentale dans le contexte du cancer pédiatrique : état de la question

    C. Eira Nunes, B. Mouton, S. Van Petegem

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 351-358, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0216

    Abstract This article, although not systematically, presents a state of the art of the existing theoretical and empirical literature on parental overprotection in families with a child suffering from cancer. We address the characteristics of overprotection as well as the question of whether this parenting behavior can be adaptive or deleterious for the child in this specific situation. This review also identifies some family and societal factors that may promote overprotection in mothers and fathers and highlights the importance of the broader family and societal context when studying parenting in pediatric oncology.
