The clear writing, a tight focus on medical and psychosocial issues in teenagers, clarification of complex issues, the reader friendly format...just a few of the reasons why ESSENTIAL ADOLESCENT MEDICINE is such a valuable resource for health professionals caring for adolescents.

The problem-oriented approach guides readers systematically through adolescent health issues, and reviews evaluation, diagnosis, and management of teenagers' medical and mental health problems encountered in daily practice. The physician/psychologist team sheds new light on disorders common in adolescence—and on teenagers' concerns. ESSENTIAL ADOLESCENT MEDICINE keeps you on the cutting edge of adolescent practice with features that include:

· An up-to-date review of adolescent health, growth, and development

· System-by-system evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of a broad spectrum of adolescent medical disorders

· Guidance on consent and confidentiality issues

· Succinct but thorough coverage of sexual and reproductive health

· Coverage of STDs, contraception, sexual abuse, pregnancy, abortion, and breast and menstrual problems

· Three chapters on adolescent nutrition, obesity, and eating disorders

· Sports coverage, including preparticipation evaluation and care for the injured athlete

· Diagnosis and treatment of substance abuse disorders, and teenage mood, anxiety, and other mental health conditions

· Problems of noncompliance

· Transitioning patients from pediatric to adult care

· A wealth of charts, tables, lists, and algorithms for ease of access
