Clinical Practice in Pediatric Psychology
Clinical Practice in Pediatric Psychology publishes articles representing the professional and applied activities of pediatric psychology. The journal comprehensively
- describes the breadth and richness of the field in its diverse activities;
- complements the scientific development of the field with information on the applied/clinical side;
- provides modeling that addresses the ways practicing pediatric psychologists incorporate empirical literature into day-to-day activities;
- emphasizes work that incorporates and cites evidence from the science base; and
- provides a forum for those engaged in primarily clinical activities to report on their activities and inform future research activities.
Articles include a range of formats such as commentaries, reviews, and clinical case reports in addition to more traditional empirical clinical studies.
Articles address issues such as
- professional and training activities in pediatric psychology and interprofessional functioning;
- funding/reimbursement patterns and the evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of clinical services;
- program development;
- organization of clinical services and workforce analyses;
- applications of evidence based interventions in "real world" settings with particular attention to potential barriers and solutions and considerations of diverse populations;
- critical analyses of professional practice issues;
- clinical innovations, e.g., emerging use of technology in clinical practice;
- case studies, particularly case studies that have enough detail to be replicated and that provide a basis for larger scale intervention studies; and
- organizational, state and federal policies as they impact the practice of pediatric psychology, with a particular emphasis on changes due to health care reform.
