  Title Parental chronic pain and internalizing symptoms in offspring: the role of adolescents' social competence – the HUNT study Type Journal Article
  Year 2018 Publication Journal of Pain Research Abbreviated Journal J Pain Res  
  Volume 11 Issue Pages 2915-2928  
  Keywords adolescents; anxiety; chronic pain; depression; sex differences; social competence  
  Abstract Background: A growing body of research suggests that the children of parents with chronic pain are at risk for internalizing symptoms. The mechanisms of such associations have not been as thoroughly examined. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether adolescents' social competence mediates the association between parental chronic pain and offspring internalizing symptoms as well as whether these associations are moderated by adolescent gender. Methods: The current study was based on cross-sectional data from the Nord-Trondelag Health Study (HUNT 3), a Norwegian population-based health survey conducted in 2006-2008. The present sample comprised adolescents who had both parents participating (n=9,681). Structural equation modeling was used for the data analysis. Results: Our results indicated that the association between concurrent maternal and paternal chronic pain and offspring's symptoms of anxiety and depression was partly mediated by low social competence for girls (b(SE)=0.060 [0.030], P=0.043) but not for boys (b(SE)=-0.059 [0.040], P=0.146). This suggests that these associations are moderated by offspring gender. Conclusion: The study extends the existing literature on the possible pathways between parental chronic pain and internalizing symptoms in the offspring. Identifying protective factors in the pathways between parental chronic pain and mental distress in children could guide measures that promote the wellbeing of the child and family of chronic pain sufferers.
