“The high quality, in-depth descriptions of the issues by the stellar, expert contributors make this new edition worthwhile. The work is especially mindful of technology innovations such as telemedicine, which can broaden outreach efforts to rural areas, and internet-based interventional and motivational strategies; these examples make this reference distinguishable. This easily readable and extremely detailed book is most highly recommended for psychology undergraduates and graduates, interns, researchers, and policy makers. Highly recommended. All readers.”

“The fifth edition of this handbook substantially updates a highly valued classic, with contributions from the top scholars in the field. In addition to management of common pediatric conditions, the volume covers professional and public policy issues relevant to practitioners and researchers alike. Content on health care disparities and health systems integration across agencies, communities, and schools adds significant practical utility.”

“This handbook is the quintessential resource for pediatric psychology. The editors have captured not only the vitality of the field, but also the depth and breadth of the science underlying effective interventions, highlighting key trends in training, research, and practice. Important themes include diversity, the intersection of psychology and biology, and integration of care. The fifth edition encompasses a wealth of emerging issues, including cost-effectiveness, rural health, and international developments. It will continue to be the go-to volume for classroom teaching and professional reference.”

—Sharon Berry, PhD, ABPP, Director of Training and Associate Clinical Director, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota

“The fifth edition of the Handbook carries forward the comprehensive, authoritative coverage found in prior editions. There is exciting new content on training and competencies in pediatric psychology, eHealth applications, and epigenetics, to name just a few topics. In the fifth edition, science and practice are engaged in a meaningful collaboration. This handbook is a 'must have' for every reference shelf and for graduate courses in pediatric psychology. Health care professionals who work in a variety of settings will benefit from the wisdom within.”

—Barry S. Anton, PhD, ABPP, past president, American Psychological Association; Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Puget Sound

“This volume arrives at an ideal time, as we are immersed in a rapidly changing health care environment. This handbook continues the tradition of providing practical information across research, practice, and public health topics, and offers updated coverage of the essential role of psychologists in transforming health care delivery. This fifth edition should be part of every pediatric psychologist’s library and every graduate pediatric psychology curriculum.”
