Abstract

Ever since the establishment of the subspecialty of pediatric psychology, psychologists have been called upon to provide consultation to their pediatrician colleagues in ever-expanding roles and in a variety of medical settings. In response, a number of models have been created to address how psychologists fit into the overall health-care system in order to address those psychosocial factors that can have a major impact on prevention/early intervention in pediatric illness and injury and overall adjustment and quality of life. This chapter addresses both theoretical and pragmatic issues in establishing and maintaining a viable consultation-liaison service while avoiding personal and professional burnout.
