Within the past two generations alone, child and adolescent obesity has more than doubled for some age groups and tripled for others. Consequently, the extraordinary number of school-age children now being diagnosed with what were once considered adult-onset disorders - hypertension, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, and related cardio-pulmonary conditions - has catapulted pediatric obesity to the forefront of national attention.

Now, in one comprehensive, easy-to-access volume, the Handbook of Childhood and Adolescent Obesity reveals the scope of the problem in terms of its psychological burden, its health consequences, and the available prevention and treatment options with the most current empirical and clinical knowledge available. This volume provides readers not only raw data, but also a framework for translating findings into effective, efficient practice - assessment, treatment, and prevention. This volume: Emphasizes developmental considerations - the specific information most relevant to toddlers, school-age children, and adolescents. Examines sociocultural and economic risk factors and their attendant treatment issues. Addresses the particular challenges of treating overweight children with psychiatric comorbidities.

Handbook of Positive Behavior Support by Michael C Roberts( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revolution in working with difficult students began during the 1980s, with a dramatic shift away from dependence on simply punishing bad behavior to reinforcing desired, positive behaviors of children in the classroom. With its foundation in applied behavior analysis (ABA), positive behavior support (PBS) is a social ecology approach that continues to play an increasingly integral role in public education as well as mental health and social services nationwide. The Handbook of Positive Behavior Support gathers into one concise volume the many elements of this burgeoning field and organizes them into a powerful, dynamic knowledge base - theory, research, and applications. Within its chapters, leading experts, including the primary developers and researchers of PBS: Review the origins, history, and ethical foundations of positive behavior support. Report on applications of PBS in early childhood and family contexts, from Head Start to foster care to mental health settings to autism treatment programs. Examine school-based PBS used to benefit all students regardless of ability or conduct. Relate schoolwide PBS to wraparound mental health services and the RTI (response to intervention) movement. Provide data and discussion on a variety of topics salient to PBS, including parenting issues, personnel training, high school use, poorly functioning schools, and more. This volume is an essential resource for school-based practitioners as well as clinicians and researchers in clinical child, school, and educational psychology
