MEDIA REVIEWS
"In the tradition of prior editions, the Handbook of Pediatric Psychology, Fourth Edition, is an essential reference for mental health and medical professionals who work with children and adolescents experiencing health-related difficulties. The contributors are a virtual 'who's who' of the field, and their chapters are uniformly up to date and of exceedingly high quality. One is hard-pressed to find a major topic of relevance to pediatric psychology that is not covered in this volume. It is an ideal text for graduate courses in pediatric and child health psychology, as well as courses that attempt to provide a broad perspective on clinical child psychology."--James H. Johnson, PhD, ABPP, Director of Clinical Training, Department of Clinical and Health Psychology, University of Florida

"This extraordinary book conveys the breadth and excitement of the field of pediatric psychology. The fourth edition captures many advances in the field and includes new chapters on 21st-century issues such as the integration of behavioral health into primary care settings, inpatient consultation-liaison services, evidence-based practice, and much more. The updated chapters on cultural and diversity issues are important, given trends in population diversity. A remarkable, monumental work."--Diane J. Willis, PhD, Department of Pediatrics (Emeritus), University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center

"An invaluable resource for psychologists and other health care professionals who provide clinical care, conduct research, or teach courses in pediatric or child health psychology. The editors have enlisted the talents of outstanding scholars who describe the latest in science and practice. Readers will greatly appreciate the fourth edition's scholarship, utility, and comprehensive coverage. An outstanding accomplishment and a 'must read,' this book reflects the continuing growth and vibrancy of the field."--Dennis Drotar, PhD, Director, Center for Adherence Promotion and Self-Management, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
