About this item

Bringing together new and leading scholar in the field of children's health and illness, this book is the first to demonstrate the importance of research with children and research from a child perspective, in order to fully understand the meaning and impact of health and illness in children's lives

Children, Health and Well-being addresses three cross-cutting themes. The first theme illustrates the significance and pervasive Influence of policy and discourse in shaping understandings of children's lives. The second theme focuses on health policy in action by looking at interactions between professionals, parents and children. The final theme highlights children's role as healthcare actors, focusing on the lived experience of children. Taken together, the themes encourage critical reflection on contemporary and culturally specific ways of knowing and understanding children's health

The book furthers theoretical understandings of the sociology of children's health and illness and encourages productive debate amongst a wide audience, including academics, policymakers and healthcare professionals. The collection goes some way to seriously begin the important process of addressing the migration of child health from the margins into mainstream sociology of health and illness
