Product Overview

`At last - a book which offers practitioners a wealth of guidance and insights into helping children and their families to cope with illness. With its child-centred emphasis on promoting psychological well-being, resilience and adaptation to illness as well as improving treatment outcomes this will undoubtedly be a well used and often quoted text for both students and current practitioners.'---Deborah Plummer, Senior Lecturer in Health Studies, De Montfort University, UK

`...[A]n outstanding resource for all members of multidisciplinary pediatric healthcare teams caring for children and their families. This work balances the "big picture" by highlighting relevant conceptual frameworks with helpful guidance for working with youth and family members. It is a unique integration of current work that will be widely read and valued around the world.'---Professor Anne E. Kazak, Director of the Department of Psychology, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Professor of Pediatrics, University of Pennsylvania, USA

This book provides a comprehensive guide to promoting the psychological well-being of children with chronic illnesses and medical conditions, covering support within health, social services and education. It discusses issues such as the impact of diagnosis and the experiences of children and their families in managing their medical condition and treatment. Strategies to support children and help them to cope with illness are demonstrated, including cognitive behavioural and systemic approaches, and techniques such as relaxation and motivational interviewing. Case examples from clinical practice are given to illustrate the application of psychological ideas and frameworks to a variety of medical conditions and psychological difficulties. The book also includes a comprehensive resources section for where to look for further information.

This will be an invaluable book for all professionals working with children with medical conditions, including psychologists, doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, counsellors, social workers, speech and language therapists, dieticians and play therapists
