Now in a fully revised and expanded third edition, 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 has been carefully structured and peer-reviewed to ensure full and accurate coverage of professional issues; approaches to prevention and intervention with children and families; and psychosocial aspects of a wide range of medical conditions and developmental, emotional, and behavioral problems. Extensively rewritten chapters from leading clinical researchers incorporate the latest concepts, findings, and applications in this dynamic field. An entirely new section addresses such emerging issues as racial and ethnic disparities in health and healthcare, genetic disorders and genetic testing, Internet-based health services, and more. Other new chapters cover professional training, roles, and practice patterns; peer relations of children with chronic illness; HIV/AIDS in children and adolescents; and pediatric obesity.

"...now in paperback...a comprehensive resource focusing on those issues most important in the day-to-day activities of pediatric psychology research and practice...sponsored by the Society of Pediatric Psychology."

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Brockman, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This comprehensive, peer-reviewed book has been updated to cover the evolving multifaceted field of pediatric psychology. This edition builds on the traditional and scientific foundation of this profession published in the first (1988) and second (1995) editions. It provides a well organized and accessible review of the current science and clinical practice that defines this dynamic field.
Purpose: The purpose is to address the growth within pediatric psychology; update the conceptualizations, research and practice activities that are core to this field; and look to the future for emerging opportunities and challenges that impact the health of children and adolescents. This book emphasizes the importance of the scientist-practitioner model in the evolving roles that pediatric psychologists play in a variety of settings. It is an outstanding reference that makes an important contribution to the field.
Audience: The obvious audiences are practitioners and graduate students in pediatric psychology. It is also designed for health professionals at all levels with a wide range of clinical and research interests in the psychosocial aspects of children's health. The handbook is sponsored by the Society of Pediatric Psychology, Division 54 of the American Psychological Association, because of its scholarly significance to the field. The editor, an outstanding contributor to the field, formed an advisory panel and an editorial board of experts to develop relevant topics and authors, and each chapter was written and reviewed by leading clinical researchers.
Features: There are five sections of this handbook that address the professional issues, current scientific findings, and emerging opportunities and challenges that shape this evolving field. The first section has been expanded to include two additional chapters and, with a focus on the future, they discuss training, legal and ethical concerns, diverse roles and practice settings of pediatric psychologists. The next three sections address health promotion and disease prevention, pediatric pain management, issues related to interventions with children, adolescents and families, and the psychosocial adjustment of children and adolescents with a wide range of medical and developmental conditions. For practitioners, these sections are invaluable updated overviews of etiology, behavioral health assessment methods, factors affecting child, adolescent, and family functioning, and developmentally appropriate interventions based on current research. New chapters include peer relationships of children with chronic disease, HIV/AIDS in children and adolescents, and pediatric obesity. The last section deals with the challenges of providing healthcare services and promoting quality of life for children and adolescents. Topics include telehealth, managed care, and other issues in the public health arena.
Assessment: This handbook provides an excellent overview of a wide variety of topics. It has updated and expanded information from the two previous editions. The editor acknowledges that severe space restrictions were imposed on the authors, limiting the depth and complexity of their contributions. Readers requiring more detailed research or clinical information can use this handbook as an updated introduction to guide further research.
From the Publisher

"The revised third edition of this highly respected handbook offers far more than a lightweight upgrade. Roberts has brought together not only updated, peer-reviewed material from outstanding contributors, but also new content related to such important topics as professional roles and practice patterns, racial and ethnic health disparity and access to care issues, pediatric quality of life research, predictive genetic testing, pediatric telehealth services, and international pediatric psychology. This classic work should be on every pediatric psychologist's bookshelf."--Gerry Koocher, PhD, School for Health Studies, Simmons College

"Building on previous editions, the Handbook of Pediatric Psychology, Third Edition validates pediatric psychology as a separate entity of study, research, and practice. Roberts and his colleagues offer an incisive analysis of research and practice in this emergent field. Of special significance is the extensive coverage of psychological issues related to children's chronic medical conditions. The section on cross-cutting issues is also particularly impressive, addressing everything from health promotion and prevention to the effects of illness on a child's family life, psychosocial adjustment, and peer relationships. This volume is a 'must read' for practitioners and researchers providing health- and education-related services to children and teens, and an excellent text for graduate students and trainees."--Norine G. Johnson, PhD, past president, American Psychological Association

"Handbook of Pediatric Psychology, Third Edition, synthesizes state-of-the-art research into a well-written and practical form designed to be useful not only to psychologists, but to all professionals interested in children's psychobiology and health. In addition to covering problem areas and psychopathology, the book also addresses aspects of positive psychology, adaptation, and coping. Chapters on special topics are timely and well organized. 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. I highly recommend it."--Lonnie Zeltzer, MD, Departments of Pediatrics, Anesthesiology, 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

A comprehensive reference on scientific, professional, and applied issues in pediatric psychology, produced by the Society of Pediatric Psychology. This revised edition (the first was in 1988, edited by Donald K. Routh) contains 40 contributed chapters in six sections: professional issues; cross-cutting aspects; prevention and promotion; physical conditions--research and clinical applications; developmental, behavioral, and emotional problems; and special issues. The emphasis is on review of the research literature, and the references are extensive. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
