Overview

The fourth edition of Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics—the pioneering, original text— emphasizes children’s assets and liabilities, not just categorical labels. It includes fresh perspectives from new editors—Drs. William Coleman, Ellen Elias, and Heidi Feldman, as well as further contributions from two of the original editors, William B. Carey, M.D, and Allen C. Crocker, M.D. This comprehensive resource offers information and guidance on normal development and behavior: genetic influences, the effect of general physical illness and psychosocial and biologic factors on development and behavior. It is also sufficiently scholarly and scientific to serve as a definitive reference for researchers, teachers, and consultants. With a more user-friendly design and online access through Expert Consult functionality, this resource offers easy access comprehensive guidance.

• Features new chapters dealing with genetic influences on development and behavior, crisis management, coping strategies, self-esteem, self-control, and inborn errors of metabolism to cover the considerable advances and latest developments in the field.

• Focuses on the clinical aspects of function and dysfunction, rather than arranging subjects according to categorical labels.

• Emphasizes children’s assets as well as their liability so you get a well-developed approach to therapeutic management.

• Concludes each chapter with a summary of the principle points covered, with tables, pictures and diagrams to clarify and enhance the presentation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“No doubt Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics is destined to become a standard of this new subspecialty. As well, physicians outside the specialty and most health care workers dealing with children and adolescents will benefit from reading it.” -JAMA, review of the previous edition

"A very comprehensive book, even with a chapter on disasters, war and terrorism, and child response and management. A full spectrum of very competent academics and clinicians, who have authored these 101 chapters with a very pleasant layout and format...A book not only for the specialist in developmental-behavioral pediatrics, but also for the general pediatrician working in the community because many children that will be seen in the community are described here. This book is also recommended for other professionals in other disciplines who work with children and their families." JAMH, 2009
