Filled with vivid clinical material, this book describes effective practices for helping children and their families who are coping with chronic and acute health conditions and their treatment. Concise chapters on the psychosocial challenges associated with specific pediatric health conditions are organized around detailed case presentations. Demonstrating procedures for assessment, case conceptualization, brief intervention, and health promotion, the book highlights ways to collaborate successfully with medical providers and families. Chapters also discuss the varied roles that pediatric psychologists play in hospitals, outpatient clinics, primary care, and educational settings.
