Description

Before becoming an adult, there are three main stages: infancy, childhood and adolescences. The period of greatest development and growth is during childhood and adolescences where they experience numerous biological, psychological and social changes.The Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Health provides the most current research on children and adolescences health and development. Topics are uniquely organized using the Biopsychosocial Model, originally developed by George L. Engel in 1977 to help understand the complexity between biological, psychological and social factors. According to the Biopsychosocial Model, health is determined by the reciprocal interactions between biology (e.g., genetics, physical development, family health history), psychology (e.g., mental health, identity developmental, attitudes), and social (e.g., family, peers, school, social supports) factors. This theory suggests that each one of these factors alone is not sufficient to understand health; instead it is important to understand how these interactive components ultimately influence health outcomes.Beginning with the Biological Development and Physical Health the first volume includes research on brain development, genetics, hormones, nutrition, exercise, physical growth and puberty. The second volume continues with Psychological and Behavioral developments which contain topics on emotion, mindfulness, stress, depression, coping skills, cognitive developments, decision making, and trauma. The last volume will concentrate on the Social and Environmental Influences which comprise of cultural influences, family, school, media social media, and peers. The Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Health will take a step beyond providing up-to-date research but incorporate a translational approach including discussions of prevention and/or intervention efforts that can assist with health promotion and preventative care.The Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Health is the first major reference work that combines current research on the biological, psychological and social development of both children and adolescents in one core foundational resource.
