Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anita E. Stauffer, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This second edition reviews 40 topics relevant to research and practice in the field of pediatric psychology and updates the first edition published in 1988.
Purpose: The book's purpose is to provide a reference for psychologists who elect to do pediatric research or to apply the developing knowledge base. The book also seeks to provide a template that might define the evolving field of pediatric psychology. These ambitious goals are met.
Audience: Targeted as a reference for professionals, the book might best be used as a supplemental text by graduate students studying health psychology. The editor is a former editor of the Journal of Pediatric Psychology and a credible authority to take on the imposing task of distilling the work of group of experts.
Features: Each chapter contains a generous list of references that would assist the professional pursuing expanded information. Chapters appear to vary in their complexity and in the extent to which they capture the heart of the current information and questions. Some chapters, as titled by the editor, attempt to connect related topics and receive more general treatment.
Assessment: This book is a notable collaborative project, which should definitely be available in libraries and recommended to graduate students. Given the rapid change in healthcare and management, this new edition is a necessary replacement for the old.
