Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anita E. Stauffer, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This new book accurately describes the challenge of establishing, nurturing, and expanding a career as a pediatric psychologist.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide psychologists with increased alternatives for thinking about the process of consultation with physicians, particularly pediatricians. This work, which meets the author's objectives, is necessary in a health delivery system that is increasingly concerned with maximizing the effectiveness and efficiency of treatment simultaneously.
Audience: Targeted for psychologists who work with physicians, this book is especially pertinent for the young nonmedical professional who aspires to work on behalf of children and families collaboratively in the medical community. The author is an experienced pediatric psychologist, and his perceptions appear to accurately describe the problems of working in this community, along with good ideas about potential solutions.
Features: The book contains a number of chapters that would be pertinent to more experienced practitioners who consult in specialized medical clinics (gastroenterology, adolescent medicine). The references are pertinent and current.
Assessment: The book describes the work and ongoing challenges of the professionals who choose to work in a community where immediate medical-clinical issues are the primary concern. It will be a very useful, practical resource for the young professional who is attempting to make decisions about how and where to practice in the rapidly changing healthcare delivery environment.
