"This is a terrific book, comprehensive, evidence-based, and well-organized, with chapters ranging from the theoretical to the practical. Palermo treats the issue of pediatric pain with the intellectual rigor of a renowned scientist and the sensitivity of an experienced clinician. This book will be useful for pediatric psychologists as well as for the many other health care professionals - nurses, social workers, physicians, occupational therapists - who are integral to the care of youth with chronic pain. It will be an essential reference for a wide range of subspecialty clinics that treat youth with chronic pain in our Children's Hospital- gastroenterology, rheumatology, neurology, and adolescent medicine, to name a few."-- Lynn Walker, Professor of Pediatrics and Director of the Division of Adolescent Medicine, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
