Chronic Illness During Childhood and Adolescence: Psychological Aspects is a well-written and concise monograph from the Sage series, summarizing the current knowledge of the field. The Sage Series in Developmental Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry addresses a variety of topics from a multidisciplinary viewpoint, focusing on contemporary theory and research. The material covered in this work is most relevant to health care providers in pediatrics, child psychology, child psychiatry, nursing, and social work.

The monograph begins with a series of case vignettes, accompanied by individual commentaries. The cases chosen for discussion illustrate common and often frustrating problems encountered in the care of children with chronic diseases. The commentaries are thoughtful and thought provoking.

An overview of childhood chronic diseases is provided in the second section, beginning with a historical perspective and contemporary incidence and prevalence patterns. More specific information concerning prevalence, incidence, natural history, and developmental and psychological correlates are provided
