User’s Review:

This book provides a great resource to the general clinician. The topics are diverse and cover the major areas of pediatric psychology. Within each chapter, and following a brief introduction to the condition/disease, readers are offered a solid review of the assessment methods and treatment components most evidence-based in the current literature. The information provided really comes to life through the excellent use of case studies within each chapter, further allowing the reader to understand how he/she would actually evaluate, treat, and monitor progress with real patients in a meaningful way. Having this book as part of my professional library feels like having the support and guidance of psychologists with these areas of expertise at my fingertips!

“Fills the need for a user-friendly volume that reflects the broad scope of practice in this exciting area of psychology. Experienced practitioners provide comprehensive coverage of typical presenting concerns and settings, clinical roles, and psychological practice with specific pediatric conditions. Readers will appreciate the compelling case studies that describe assessments and interventions in rich detail. This outstanding book is a ‘must read’ for pediatric psychologists and other professionals working with pediatric populations. It is an excellent text for graduate students, interns, and fellows developing skills as practitioners.”–Dennis Drotar, PhD, Department of Pediatrics, Cincinnati Children’s Medical Center
