Review:

"Promoting Psychological Well-Being in Children with Acute and Chronic Illness" is a powerful survey that promotes the psychological well-being of children with medical conditions. Any professional working with a child will find this packed with strategies ranging from relaxation techniques to preparing a child for procedural distress and helping them feel empowered. A solid pick for any health professional's reference collection, this should be in the libraries of any who work with children. Author: The Midwest Book Review

For a non-psychologist working in chronic disease management, there are useful chapters on managing pain and distress around procedures, and on promoting adherence to treatment and transition to adult services. Author: Journal of Child Psychology & Psychiatry

`The book provides case examples to illustrate the application of psychological ideas and frameworks to a variety of medical conditions and psychological difficulties, as well as a detailed resources section.` Author: Human Givens Journal

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. It will certainly be central to the reading list for my Health Studies teaching with immediate effect. Author: Deborah Plummer, Senior Lecturer in Health Studies, De Montfort University, UK

Promoting Psychological Well-Being in Children with Acute and Chronic Illness is an 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. Author: Professor Anne E. Kazak, Director of the Department of Psychology, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Professor of Pediatrics, University of Pennsylvania, USA
