Pediatric Gastrointestinal Disorders: Biopsychosocial Assessment and Treatment.


Pediatric gastrointestinal disorders; biopsychosocial assessment and treatment.

Cunningham, Carin L. and Gerard A. Banez.



199 pages




Cunningham (Case Western Reserve School of Medicine) and Banez (the Cleveland Clinic) combine medical and behavioral/mental health perspectives on the assessment and treatment of pediatric gastrointestinal disorders in this reference guide and manual for health care practitioners. Seeking to be practice-oriented but empirically informative, they describe common disorders and their psychological/behavioral correlates and sequelae, present conceptual/theoretical perspectives on the etiology and treatment of the disorders, and review empirically supported and clinically useful assessment and treatment strategies. Chapters cover inflammatory bowel disease, esophageal disorders, rumination and cyclic vomiting syndrome, recurrent abdominal pain, irritable bowel syndrome, and defecation disorders. They also consider a number of treatment and consultation issues in the context of case studies.
