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. Yet even as recognition grows, reliable, scientifically tested information and methods often get lost in the media crush of quick fixes and hyped-up news stories.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.Table of contents Section I: Prevalence, Correlates, and Consequences.- Pediatric Obesity in Context: Trends and Epidemiology.- Health Consequences of Obesity in Children and Adolescents.- Psychosocial Factors Related to Obesity in Children and Adolescents.- Binge Eating in Overweight Children and Adolescents.- Section II: Assessment of Pediatric Obesity and Contributing Conditions.- The Definition and Assessment of Childhood Overweight: A Developmental Perspective.- Assessment of Dietary Practices and Eating Attitudes and Behaviors.- Development of Eating Patterns.- Section III: Risk Factors for Obesity in Children and Youth.- Physiological Mechanisms Impacting Weight Regulation.- Socioeconomic Factors Related to Overweight in Children and Adolescents.- The "Obesignenic" Environment.- Application of Genetic Epidemiology to Understanding Pediatric Obesity.- Section IV: Interventions.- Developmental Considerations in Intervention with Children and Adolescents with Obesity.- Empirically Supported Treatment of Overweight Children.- Empirically Supported Treatment of Overweight Adolescents.- Intensive Therapies for Treatment of Pediatric Obesity.- Residential Treatment Programs for Pediatric Obesity.- Model Treatment Programs.- Cultural Considerations in the Development of Pediatric Weight Management Interventions.- Section V: Prevention of Pediatric Obesity.- Prevention Programs: Preschool Children.- Prevention Programs: School Age Children and Adolescents.- Community-level prevention programs for children and adolescents.- Section VI: Future Directions.- The role of public policy in management of the pediatric obesity epidemic.- Technological Innovations in the Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Obesity.- Application of Motivational Interview Techniques to Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Obesity.- Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Obesity and Comorbid Psychiatric Conditions.- Application of Empirically Supported Treatments to Practice Settings.- Directions for Future Research in Pediatric Obesity Prevention and Intervention.
