With modern conveniences and technology always beckoning, today’s children are less active and more obese than ever—which leads to an ever-increasing need for more effective interventions to help them become more active. Physical Activity Interventions in Children and Adolescents addresses this problem by helping professionals in schools, health departments, recreation centers, state agencies, and not-for-profit organizations design, implement, and evaluate interventions to promote and increase physical activity among children and adolescents.

Part of the Physical Activity Intervention Series, Physical Activity Interventions in Children and Adolescents provides information on current levels of youth physical activity and presents a basic understanding of the issues associated with it. The book offers a clear and reader-friendly overview of theories of behavior change that have been used in developing physical activity interventions in a variety of settings and methods for program evaluation. Specific recommendations for physical activity from various professional and health organizations are included as well. The book also provides

  • descriptive epidemiology of youth physical activity that helps identify the changes in activity as children age;
  • insights into the potential role of the family and the community in providing physical activity opportunities for youth;
  • guidance for the development of collaborative relationships among agencies and organizations to promote physical activity in the community; and
  • a review of available instruments for measuring physical activity in youth populations, including self-report instruments and step counters.
