Abstract
Limited-edition flavor promotions. Pop-ups on the Net. Junk food blogs. Cereal ads in cartoon shows. Between traditional and emerging media, today's youth are exposed to more advertisements for food and beverages than ever--and, unfortunately, the rising number of overweight and obese children and teenagers reflects this, as do the alarming rates of weight-related disease among young people. Advances in Communication Research to Reduce Childhood Obesity focuses not only on the power of media in driving food choices in youth, but how these same media may be harnessed in reversing the obesity epidemic. Spanning psychology, marketing, and policy, the book explores the range of advertising strategies targeting young people, salient technological innovations, food industry responses to recent policy initiatives, and issues concerning groups who are at greater risk such as minors from lower-income households who are often faced with food insecurity and poor nutrition, which typically impact communities of color, and pre-teens. Its focus on the multiple levels of communication across these concerns offers readers important insights into both the scope of the problem and the opportunities for solutions. Included in the coverage:the strategic nature of marketing to children and adolescents by food and beverage companies.The role of schools in food and beverage marketing.A multi-method study of how youth perceive and evaluate food advertising. First Amendment implications for combating obesity through regulation of advertising.Targeted marketing of junk food to minority youth: communities fight back.Leveraging industry efforts to fight childhood obesity. Advances in Communication Research to Reduce Childhood Obesity is thought- and action-provoking reading for applied researchers in public health, health promotion, health psychology, maternal and child health, obesity epidemiology, health marketing, and health education.

Abstract
The MassGeneral Hospital for Children Handbook of Pediatric Global Health is a concise resource for the ever-increasing number of health professionals involved in global health, many of whom spend a few weeks to months or even years providing medical care in resource-poor countries. This Handbook provides practical, evidence-based, hands-on guidance for managing and preventing childhood illnesses when resources are limited in low- and middle-income countries. It also offers a setting-specific understanding and management approaches to the major causes of childhood mortality, including pneumonia, diarrhea, birth asphyxia, complications of preterm birth, and neonatal sepsis. The Handbook provides an overview of childhood mortality, health systems, and the various stakeholders that play a role in the global health arena, and also contains chapters focusing on adolescents who are increasingly recognized as a unique population in whom interventions can go a long way in bothconsolidating the gains made in childhood and preventing adult disease. Finally, key topics in non-communicable diseases are covered, including trauma and injuries, pediatric mental health, child and adolescent rights, and oral health. Not meant solely for pediatricians, the Handbook is designed for generalists, specialists, doctors, nurses, other health care workers, and those in training. An indispensable reference for health professionals overseas, the Handbook will also be a useful addition and resource for academic centers and universities in industrialized nations that are creating courses for trainees who will do clinical electives abroad during their training.

Abstract
Over the past decade, significant advances in research methodology have stimulated dramatic progress in the field of child psychiatry in general, and in pediatric anxiety disorders, more specifically. Pediatric Anxiety Disorders: A Clinical Guide is a comprehensive and vital addition to the literature at an exciting time in the field of psychiatry. This state-of-the-art reference aims to bridge the most up-to-date research findings with relevant clinical perspectives, making it a unique and essential resource for established clinicians and researchers, as well as for students and trainees. The book is organized into four sections, each of which includes chapters on a specific area of interest. The first section reviews the current research regarding etiological mechanisms of pediatric anxiety. The second section provides in-depth descriptions of the anxiety disorders that affect children and adolescents. The third section summarizes the literature on empirically supported assessment tools and evidence based cognitive-behavioral and pharmacological interventions. Of special practical note, the authors of these chapters have included comprehensive summary tables that can serve as quick reference tools. The final section of the text is dedicated to understanding how anxiety manifests in two special populations, children with chronic medical illnesses and those with autism spectrum disorders. Pediatric Anxiety Disorders: A Clinical Guide is an authoritative new volume developed by a renowned collection of clinicians and researchers in the field of childhood anxiety disorders.

Abstract
Pain is an increasingly common symptom in children and adolescents. Once a chronic pain condition affects different aspects of a child's life, it is considered a pain disorder, irrespective of the underlying physical condition. Nearly 5% of the paediatric population now suffer from severe chronic pain conditions. The treatment of pain disorders in childhood and adolescence is complex and needs to address a variety of influencing bio-psycho-social factors. Misconceptions like one of the "Three Thougt Traps" on the part of doctors, therapists and parents also have to be taken into account. This manual describes the inpatient treatment programme of one of the world's largest treatment facility for chronic pain in children--The German Paediatric Pain Centre--and the guidance provided is also applicable to outpatient pain management. Epidemiology, aetiology, diagnostics and treatment principles are all examined in detail. Criteria for inpatient treatment are explained, and the structure and organisation of a tertiary treatment centre for chronic pain are described. Therapeutic interventions like dealing with "Black Thoughts", "Distraction-ABC", "Stress Day" and the "Pain ProvocationTechnique" are presented with the aid of many examples of pain management and health care from clinical practice. Special features of pain therapy for children and adolescents suffering from comorbid mental disorders, family difficulties or physical complaints are also discussed.
Contents
Epidemiology of chronic pain in children and adolescents -- Pain disorder: a biopsychosocial disease -- Diagnostics of chronic pain in children and adolescents -- the basics of treating pain disorders in children and adolescents -- When to decide on inpatient pain therapy? -- Pain therapy in childhood and adolescent chronic pain -- Specifics of pain therapy in children with mental disorders, severe somatic disease, or psychosocial stress factors -- Is it all worthwhile? - Effectiveness in intensive interdisciplinary pain treatment -- Diagnostic tools.

Abstract
The past two decades have witnessed a technological revolution in surgery, leading to the widespread application of minimally invasive techniques. Such techniques have had a profound impact on the diagnosis and therapy of thoracic disorders, including in the pediatric age group. This book is intended as a practical guide to the current approaches in pediatric thoracic surgery. Up-to-date information is provided on the surgical techniques employed for diagnosis and therapy in a wide range of congenital and acquired thoracic pathologies from the prenatal age to adolescence. Among the disorders considered in detail are cystic malformations of the lung, chest wall deformities, diaphragmatic hernias, esophageal anomalies, mediastinal tumors, laryngeal anomalies, and thoracic infections. The authors are distinguished experts in the field from across the world. Pediatric Thoracic Surgery will be of value not only for pediatric thoracic surgeons but also for adult thoracic surgeons, pediatric anesthetists, and pediatric respiratory physicians.

Abstract
Pediatric Allergy, Asthma and Immunology reflects the rapid progress in one of the most intriguing fields of medicine. The book offers state-of-the-art information on basic immunology, fetal-neonatal immunology, genetic and environmental predisposing factors, epidemiology and natural history of atopic diseases, and allergy diagnosis. Extensive coverage is devoted to skin conditions and food allergy, asthma, rhinitis, specific immunotherapy, eye disorders, sinusitis and secretory otitis media, drug allergies, and anaphylaxis. Fascinating chapters explore such topics as autoimmune diseases, primary immunodeficiencies, pediatric HIV infection, malnutrition and the immune system. Finally, a chapter on prevention of the atopic march indicates how effective early intervention may greatly decrease the upsurge in atopy. Easy to understand and easy to use, Pediatric Allergy, Asthma and Immunology is essential reading for medical students, practicing physicians, allergists, immunologists, and researchers.
