DESCRIPTION

Description: This book Edited by Larry C. James, Wright State University, Dayton, OH, USA John Linton, West Virginia University School of Medicine, Charleston Environmental, genetic, psychological, and societal factors interact to produce obesity, a chronic condition of epidemic proportions. The Handbook of Obesity Intervention for the Lifespan guides professionals in meeting this complex challenge with a multidisciplinary palette of evidence-based interventions that can be tailored to men and women across the lifespan, regardless of background.
 
This unique reference combines salient research data and hands-on clinical applications for use with overweight patients, from the very young to the very old, and includes a “treatment resources” section with extra materials to bolster therapy-all geared toward respectful, encouraging treatment and lasting weight-loss results. Key features of the Handbook: Review of the obesity literature, both pediatric and adult. Exercise interventions for children and adults. Lifestyle interventions for adolescents, adults, and seniors. Weight-related cultural issues throughout the lifespan. Bariatric surgery: when is it indicated? How successful is it? The ten critical steps to healthy weight loss. Clinical resources, patient self-help materials, and useful websites. With excess weight contributing to some 300,000 deaths in the U.S. each year, the Handbook of Obesity Intervention for the Lifespan will be welcomed-and consulted frequently-by clinical and health psychologists, psychiatrists, primary care providers, and nutritionists.
