Handbook of Pediatric Psychology

by Edited by Michael C. Roberts

This volume provides a state-of-the-science review of research and practice at the interface of psychology and pediatric medicine.

Full Description:   

This volume provides a state-of-the-science review of research and practice at the interface of psychology and pediatric medicine. Sponsored by the Society of Pediatric Psychology, the Handbook comprises carefully structured, peer-reviewed chapters from recognized leaders in their respective areas. Current knowledge is presented on psychosocial aspects of a wide range of child and adolescent medical problems and developmental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. Evidence-based applications are described for promoting health, preventing disease and injury, and helping children and families cope with medical conditions and their treatment.

"Synthesizes state-of-the-art research into a well-written and practical form....This volume should be read by all psychologists who evaluate and treat children with health-related conditions and medical illnesses, and by graduate students in clinical child psychology. It is also a 'must' for pediatricians."
-Lonnie Zeltzer, MD, Departments of Pediatrics, Anesthesiology, and Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, and Pediatric Pain Program, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA

"This is an outstanding reference with broad applicability to both teaching and the practice of pediatric psychology at all levels. The current edition is particularly valuable since it not only updates existing diagnostic and therapeutic knowledge but also addresses emerging developments in such areas as autism, ADHD, and HIV/AIDS."
-Robert E. Hannemann, MD, FAAP, past president, American Academy of Pediatrics; Visiting Professor of Child Psychology, Purdue University
