Distinctions and Prizes

The increasing patient numbers and the accompanying scientific literature on our work to date show that there is an enormous demand for the care of children and adolescents with chronic pain and that these patients can be helped significantly. The success of the therapy concept and the scientific and societal relevance of the work of the Institute are made clear by the numerous distinctions and prizes that have been awarded to it.
