Handbook of Life Course Health Development, 1st ed. 2018

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Halfon Neal, Forrest Christopher B., Lerner Richard M., Faustman Elaine M.

Couverture de l’ouvrage Handbook of Life Course Health Development
This handbook synthesizes and analyzes the growing knowledge base on life course health development (LCHD) from the prenatal period through emerging adulthood, with implications for clinical practice and public health. It presents LCHD as an innovative field with a sound theoretical framework for understanding wellness and disease from a lifespan perspective, replacing previous medical, biopsychosocial, and early genomic models of health. Interdisciplinary chapters discuss major health concerns (diabetes, obesity), important less-studied conditions (hearing, kidney health), and large-scale issues (nutrition, adversity) from a lifespan viewpoint.  In addition, chapters address methodological approaches and challenges by analyzing existing measures, studies, and surveys. The book concludes with the editors’ research agenda that proposes priorities for future LCHD research and its application to health care practice and health policy.

Topics featured in the Handbook include: 
- The prenatal period and its effect on child obesity and metabolic outcomes.
- Pregnancy complications and their effect on women’s cardiovascular health.
- A multi-level approach for obesity prevention in children.
- Application of the LCHD framework to autism spectrum disorder.
- Socioeconomic disadvantage and its influence on health development across the lifespan.
- The importance of nutrition to optimal health development across the lifespan.

The Handbook of Life Course Health Development is a must-have resource for researchers, clinicians/professionals, and graduate students in developmental psychology/science; maternal and child health; social work; health economics; educational policy and politics; and medical law as well as many interrelated subdisciplines in psychology, medicine, public health, mental health, education, social welfare, economics, sociology, and law.

Neal Halfon, M.D., M.P.H., is the director of the UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families and Communities. He is also a professor of pediatrics in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, of health policy and management in the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, and of public policy in the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.
Synthesizes research linking early life events with adult health conditions - Delineates the developmental origins of common chronic health conditions - Specifies processes by which both adversity and opportunity are embedded into developing bio-behavioral systems - Examines strategies that minimize the impact of adversity, increase protective factors, and target interventions to coincide with sensitive periods of development​
