Summary Over recent decades, tremendous advances in the prevention, medical treatment, and quality of life issues in children and adolescents surviving cancer have spawned a host of research on paediatric psychosocial oncology. This important volume fulfills the clear need for an up-to-date, comprehensive handbook for practitioners that delineates the most recent research in the field - the first of its kind in a decade. Over 60 renowned authors have been assembled to provide a thorough presentation of state-of-the-art research and literature, with topics including: *Neuropsychological effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy *Bone marrow transplant *Important issues about quality of life during and following treatment *Collaborative research among child-focused psychologists *Standards of psychological care for children and adolescents *Stress and coping in the paediatric cancer experience *The role of family and peer relationships The Comprehensive Handbook of Childhood Cancer and Sickle Cell Disease represents both multidisciplinary and international efforts, an alliance between physicians and parents, and a combination of research and service.; With a wealth of information of great interest to patients and their families, this volume will also be a welcome resource to the psychologists, psychiatrists, paediatricians, oncologists, nurses, and social workers who confront these issues as they help children and their families through the treatment, recovery and grieving process.
