Children's Health Care

Children's Health Care
Issues for the Year 2000 and Beyond

Edited by:

February 1999 | 336 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

As the United States approaches the millennium, how will it address the mental health needs of its youth? The contributors of this ground-breaking volume grapple with this issue and provide fodder for discussion on how to ensure and improve the future health care of our children. Beginning with an overview of children's health care from colonial times to the present, the leaders in this field address such issues as the federal government's involvement in health care services for low-income families; the two major models for service delivery (the Community Health Center and School-Based Health and Social Services Center); the effectiveness of outpatient mental health services; the most effective forms of intervention for changing specific dysfunctional behaviors; the financial issues of health care delivery, including ways to increase cost effectiveness; and the issues of psychopharmacology versus "talk" therapies.

Researchers, graduate students, and practitioners who want the latest synthesis on the topic of health care services for children and families, and a projection for possible future directions will find this a stimulating read for furthering discussions and research
