About this book

This textbook walks clinicians through the psychosocial issues and challenges faced by children and adolescents with cancer and their families. Through a developmental lens, the text provides guidance and resources that will enable clinicians to understand the physical and emotional impact of the disease from diagnosis onwards, to work with families in distress, and to diagnose and treat a range of behavioral, psychological, and psychiatric issues. The book also addresses the burgeoning fields of social media, complementary therapies, palliative care, and survivorship. Among the variety of useful resources supplied are assessment tools, websites, and additional reading materials. The psychosocial issues that arise for children and their families during the course of treatment are an important yet often overlooked aspect of pediatric oncology care. The reader will find that Pediatric Psychosocial Oncology: Textbook for Multidisciplinary Care covers these issues at the forefront of clinical care in a direct and approachable way, integrating research literature with practical clinical guidance.

Reviews

“This book is designed to help practitioners assess, anticipate, and respond to the emotional issues that arise in children and adolescents being treated for cancer. … The audience includes all individuals involved in the care of children or adolescents undergoing treatment for cancer … . There are not many books that encompass the breadth of psychosocial care in pediatric oncology as this one does. This is a great addition to any pediatric oncology practitioner’s library.” (Melissa Mason, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2016)
