DARWeb: online psychosocial intervention for children with recurrent abdominal pain and their families

Chronic, recurrent pain is a major problem for our society and its treatment is challenging. In children, who are the target of our proposal, one of the most common pain problems is recurrent abdominal pain (RAP, or DAR, in Catalan). It can affect up to 12% of the child population, impairing the daily lives of both the children themselves and their families. The current system can offer no effective treatment for these children and their families. Consequently, we propose our online intervention, DARWeb, for people in this situation.
