Expert Guidelines: Role of Psychologists in Assessment and Treatment of Obese Youth

The psychologists participating in FOCUS on a Fitter Future II worked together to develop the white paper Expert Guidelines: Role of Psychologists in Assessment and Treatment of Obese Youth. These expert-consensus guidelines aim to assist psychologists working with obese youth in a multidisciplinary specialty care setting.

Key issues of assessment are highlighted and the role of the psychologist in the assessment process within a multidisciplinary team is carefully defined. In addition, the expert committee of authors defines the role of a psychologist in the treatment process.
