Description - Chronic Health-related Disorders in Children by LeAdelle Phelps

This engagingly written text provides current diagnostic and treatment information on a broad range of chronic health-related disorders that tend to be first diagnosed in childhood. A group of widely recognized psychologists and experts in their respective fields address common ailments, such as intestinal and respiratory disorders, as well as less frequent but challenging disorders such as neurocutaneous syndromes and disorders arising from sex chromosome anomalies. Two introductory chapters frame the overarching themes for psychologists by discussing contemporary issues in collaborative practice and service delivery. Fourteen chapters provide concise and current reviews of specific disorders, including cancer, kidney disease, endocrine disorders, and craniofacial anomalies. Each chapter defines the disorder, reviews etiology and risk factors, and provides prevalence data; outlines the behavioral, medical, psychoeducational, and socio-emotional consequences of the disorder; and presents evidence-based interventions that are intended to mitigate the negative outcomes of the disorder and improve the life-long functioning of children with chronic health-related disorders. The comprehensive medical discussions are tailored for psychologists.
