Adolescent Health Problems: Behavioral Perspectives by Jan L. Wallander


Adolescence, a dynamic period of physical and psychological growth, presents young people with a variety of developmental challenges that can have a significant impact on health-related behaviors. Because adolescents exhibit distinct patterns of morbidity and mortality, health practitioners are focusing increased attention on their unique health care needs. ADOLESCENT HEALTH PROBLEMS: BEHAVIORAL PERSPECTIVES, edited by Jan L. Wallander and Lawrence J. Siegel, presents the work of leading researchers who investigate the connections between health and behavior in both healthy and chronically ill adolescents. Sponsored by the Society of Pediatric Psychology as part of the series Advances in Pediatric Psychology, this ground breaking volume brings the literature of the field up-to-date, providing vital theoretical and clinical findings with broad implications for health promotion in adolescence and beyond.
