Psychologist Christophersen (pediatrics, U. of Missouri at Kansas City) and VanScoyoc, a psychologist in primary care and faculty member at the U. of Phoenix, provide pediatricians and psychologists with empirically supported treatments for common children's mental health and medical problems: disruptive behavior, anxiety and depression, habit disorders like tics and thumbsucking, sleep disorders, encopresis, nocturnal enuresis, pain, and adherence to medical regimens. This edition adds empirically supported assessment tools to chapters; discussion of the new American Academy of Pediatrics practice guidelines on attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, the ADHD Summer Treatment Program, and the follow-up results from the MTA Cooperative Group's ADHD research study; information on the assessment and treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder and depression, including the results of randomized studies such as the Treatment for Adolescents with Depression Study; more studies on habit disorders and tics; and advances in the assessment of sleep problems and outcomes studies on sleep interventions that support the use of evidence-based behavior management strategies. It adds studies on behavioral issues and encopresis; new prevalence figures; discussion of the role of constipation in encopresis and enuresis; updated information on the long-term health impact of poorly managed pain experiences; new information on factors that contribute to pain; updated discussion of the impact of nonadherence on mental and medical outcomes and the role of the health care provider; and discussion of proposed changes for the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
