Handbook of Obesity Intervention for the Lifespan, Hardback Book

Handbook of Obesity Intervention for the Lifespan Hardback

Edited by Larry James, John C. Linton


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.
