Harbeck, Cynthia; Peterson, Lizette
Child Development, v63 n1 p138-49 Feb 1992
Examined children's ability to describe, understand the causes of, and realize the value of three types of pain. Preschoolers, elementary school students, and college students were interviewed using open-ended questions. Although older children had more complex and precise understandings of pain, this pattern differed according to the type of pain and aspect of pain being considered. (GLR)
