Chronic Illness in Children and Adolescents

Management of chronic illness in children and adolescents often is a multifaceted challenge that requires the attention and expertise of individuals from a variety of disciplines that include psychology, psychiatry, social work, and medicine. The aim of this book is to provide readers with a practical overview of the definitions, characteristics, theories and models, diagnostic and treatment indications, and relevant aspects and methods of evidence-based psychosocial treatments for chronic illness in children and adolescents. Although treatments and research for chronic conditions are reviewed in general, particular attention is directed at asthma, cancer, cystic fibrosis, diabetes mellitus, and sickle cell disease due to the high incidence of these chronic diseases among children and adolescents. Case vignettes and suggestions for further reading are provided for the interested reader.

From the Reviews

"The book is useful for anyone new in the field that needs a starting point for further studies, but also for those who are ready to re-evaluate existing methods and are looking for fresh ideas."
Kristina Berg Kelly in Acta Pædiatrica 2008, vol. 97

"This tightly written guide pulls together essential information on evidence-based psychosocial management and symptom control for the most common chronic illnesses of childhood."
Gerald P. Koocher, PhD, Dean and Professor, School for Health Studies, Simmons College, Boston; 2006 President, American Psychological Association

"This is an absolutely outstanding book…. One of the major strengths of the book is its integration of key assessment and management issues across a variety of chronic illnesses that affect children and adolescents, rather than a disease-specific approach that could mask many of the similarities across conditions. Attention to multicultural issues is another strength that also distinguishes this volume from others in the field. Overall, this book is likely to be an indispensable resource for today's child health professionals."
Annette M. La Greca, PhD, Cooper Fellow, Professor of Psychology and Pediatrics and Director of Clinical Training, University of Miami

"The book is an excellent, user-friendly resource for practitioners and their trainees."
Dennis Drotar, PhD, Professor, Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology and Director, Center for Adherence and Self-Management, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

"This succinct volume concisely conveys the multifaceted considerations in psychosocial and medical issues associated with pediatric chronic illnesses. All of the critical issues are touched upon by integrating the scientific literature with applications to clinical practice."
Michael C. Roberts, PhD, Professor and Director, Clinical Child Psychology Program, University of Kansas
