Abstract
In the mid-1980's, clinical psychologist Leora Kuttner spearheaded a pioneer pain management project for children with cancer. In No Fears, No Tears eight courageous children with cancer, aged three to twelve years old, demonstrated a variety of ways in which the natural abilities of the mind can be enlisted to help ease physical pain. With the support of parents and caregivers, they showed how hypnosis, behavioral distraction and visualization methods, and breathing techniques could make the disease itself, as well as the long series of uncomfortable or painful tests and treatments, bearable.
The film proved the strength of the human spirit, and the mind's natural ability to ease even excruciating physical pain. It demonstrated that even quite young children can learn to actively help themselves through taxing medical treatment.
