Scholars and clinicians from health-related disciplines provide a long-range perspective on improving health in this examination of the links between temperament and health in childhood and adolescence. The nine contributions include improving diet and nutrition in children and adolescents; substance abuse; obesity: nongenetic influences in childhood and adolescence; and reducing sexually transmitted diseases among African American youth. The chapters are edited by Hayman (nursing, Steinhardt School of Eucation), Mahon (end- of-life care, Hospital of the U. of Pennsylvania) and Turner, an experimental psychologist.
