Paediatric Gastrointestinal Disorders: A psychosocial perspective

This book has been converted and optimized for reading, search and navigation on smartphones by Indextra AB.

Part of the Paediatric Psychology series, Paediatric Gastrointestinal Disorders focusses on problems and disorders within the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas of children from infancy until age eighteen. This inspirational compilation provides information on current research and clinical practice regarding the psychosocial aspects of paediatric gastrointestinal conditions, with contributions from international specialists and experts in the field.

The book is divided into three parts. The chapters in Part I act as an introduction to understanding gastrointestinal disorders and consider key theoretical aspects and central issues.

Part II investigates management and intervention concerns and includes patient narrative, offering unique insights for professional reflection.

Part III looks at the unique characteristics of the anatomy and physiology of normal development and the maturation of the digestive system in infants.

The book also includes a compendium of assessment measures and a highly practical toolkit containing flow charts, clinical interview schedules, handouts and leaflets designed specifically for parents. It offers health professionals, students and trainees a much-needed multidisciplinary perspective on the psychosocial considerations of children and young people with gastrointestinal disorders and their families.

Like other books in the Paediatric Psychology series, it "has a deliberately international focus, which reflects the paediatric psychology community and brings together material that is otherwise unavailable in this form. An inspiring and reliable resource for day-to-day paediatric practice". (From the series introduction by Angela Southall and Clarissa Martin.)

Editors: Clarissa Martin and Terence Dovey
