Rural Health Issues in Pediatric Psychology

The July 2011 issue of the Journal of Pediatric Psychology contains a
special section on rural health issues in pediatric psychology. The special section presents articles that document differences in behavior and psychosocial functioning in children and adolescents residing in rural and non-rural areas as well as how pediatric psychology can help to address the health and psychosocial functioning of children in rural settings. The articles focus on the need for and use of mental and behavioral health services; health behaviors, quality of life, and obesity; and treatment outcome research in rural
settings.
