Correlates and Suspected Causes of Obesity in Children
Crothers, Laura M.; Kehle, Thomas J.; Bray, Melissa A.; Theodore, Lea A.
Psychology in the Schools, v46 n8 p787-796 Sep 2009
The correlates and suspected causes of the intractable condition obesity are complex and involve environmental and heritable, psychological and physical variables. Overall, the factors associated with and possible causes of it are not clearly understood. Although there exists some ambiguity in the research regarding the degree of happiness in children with obesity, treatments that promote the child's psychological wellness and happiness should continue to be examined relating to promoting enduring weight reduction. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
