Only more recently has it been realized that the intense effort to care for and cure a child with cancer does not end with survival. Continued surveillance and a variety of interventions may, in many cases, be needed to identify and care for consequences of treatment that can appear early or only after several decades and impair survivorsâ€™ health and quality of life. The more than two-thirds of childhood cancer survivors who experience late effects -- that is, complications, disabilities, or adverse outcomes -- as a result of their disease, its treatment, or both, are the focus of this report which outlines a comprehensive policy agenda that links improved health care delivery and follow-up, investments in education and training for health care providers, and expanded research to improve the long-term outlook for this growing population now exceeding 270,000 Americans.

Adolescence and young adulthood is often a difficult enough time without serious illness. However, research has shown that cancer, and surviving cancer, at this age presents distinctive problems medically, socially and psychologically. This important work offers a glimpse into a previously under-researched area and contributes to a better understanding of the needs of young adults post cancer. Focusing not only on the physical effects, but also the social, cognitive, emotional and physiological consequences of surviving cancer in young adulthood, Anne Grinyer draws directly upon data collected from young adults who have been treated for cancer. The book is structured around themes they raised such as fertility; life plans; identity; psychological effects and physical effects. These issues are drawn together in the final chapter and related to clinical and professional practice as well as current policy. This book presents the voices of those who have lived through the experience of cancer in young adulthood, and links them to the theoretical and analytical literature. It will be of interest to professionals and researchers in nursing, social work, counselling and medicine as well as medical sociologists, young adults living with cancer and survivors of young adult cancer.

This authoritative reference examines in depth the myriad challenges facing pediatric cancer survivors and proposes a robust framework for structured follow-up of these patients through adulthood. Approaches to long-term follow-up include both established models of care and targeted models of lifelong surveillance of late effects by bodily systems and neurological outcomes. Sections devoted to quality of life and re-entry after treatment focus on key concerns such as health risk behaviors, school and career issues, psychological challenges, and care disparities. And a robust resources section adds extra usefulness to the expert coverage. Among the Handbook's topics: • Developmental considerations in the transition from child and adolescent to adult survivorship. • Long-term follow-up roadmaps by disease and treatment. • Neuropsychological effects of pediatric brain tumors and associated treatment. • Building resiliency in childhood cancer survivors: a clinician’s perspective. • School issues and educational strategies for survivors of childhood cancer. • Educating and preparing the childhood cancer survivor for long-term care: a curriculum model for cancer centers. A work of rare scope, scholarship, and clinical acumen, the Handbook of Long-Term Care of the Childhood Cancer Survivor is a rewarding, practice-building resource essential to a wide range of healing professionals, including primary care physicians, pediatricians, oncologists, nurses, psychologists, neuropsychologists, child psychologists, and licensed therapists.

This book is a comprehensive guide that will help medical professionals – pediatric oncologists, nurses, pediatricians, family practitioners, internists, radiation oncologists, surgeons – to understand and manage the long-term effects of treatment for childhood and adolescent cancer. The consequences of treatment are described for each organ system, with explanation of pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, detection and screening and management. Disease- and organ-based algorithms of care and tables designed to facilitate the assessment of late effects are highlights of the book and will assist in the provision of hands-on care that is up to date and geared to clinical need. Among the other topics addressed are stem cell transplantation, psychological care, legal issues, transition to adulthood and methodological issues in the study of survivorship care.

Launched in 1971, Adolescent Psychiatry, in the words of founding coeditors Sherman C. Feinstein, Peter L. Giovacchini, and Arthur A. Miller, promised "to explore adolescence as a process...to enter challenging and exciting areas that may have profound effects on our basic concepts." Further, they promised "a series that will provide a forum for the expression of ideas and problems that plague and excite so many of us working in this enigmatic but fascinating field." For over two decades, Adolescent Psychiatry has fulfilled this promise. The repository of a wealth of original studies by preeminent clinicians, developmental researchers, and social scientists specializing in this stage of life, the series has become an essential resource for all mental health professionals working with youth. Volume 20 of the series serves as a tribute to editor emeritus Sherman C. Feinstein. In addition to an appreciation of, and contributions by, Dr. Feinstein, it contains heretofore unpublished papers by two other major figures in adolescent psychiatry, founding father William Schonfeld and a Viennese colleague transplanted to America, Siegfried Bernfeld. With sections on general considerations of adolescence, specific syndromes, and treatment modalities, volume 20 presents the work of many of today's preeminent minds in adolescent psychiatry.

In Surviving In Schools in the 1990s, James R. Tompkins and Patricia L. Tompkins-McGill realize the importance and potential excellence of public schools. The authors confront the ever-increasing behavioral and emotional problems of students and offer strategic management ideas. Implementing milieu therapy, they discuss techniques which can help create a growth-enriching environment in the classroom: what rules to enforce, adult/child relationships, the power of groups and families and how to talk to students in times of trouble. Milieu therapy, long used with troubled youngsters in residential settings, and Life Space Interview are explored as significantly beneficial approaches in the public school classroom. The book includes reports from the experiences of educators who applied these practices while working with children from preschool age through adolescence in the public schools. The discussion lends to a deeper understanding of a nurturing classroom environment. Contents: The Importance of Public Schools; A Historical Overview of Milieu Therapy; Comparisons of Milieu Therapy Principles with Other Theoretical Approaches; Managing Children's Behavior; Powerful Milieu Ingredients, Basic Components of a Healthy Environment; Other Powerful Environmental Influences in Classrooms; Entry and Grouping in Schools; Milieu Ingredients Outside the Classroom; The Life Space Interview; The Therapeutic Relationship and the Education of Children; The Therapeutic Influence of Structure; Conclusion; Bibliography.
