The purpose of this clinical practice guideline developed by the American Psychological Association (APA) is to provide recommendations concerning multicomponent behavioral treatment of obesity and overweight in children and adolescents. Intended users of the guideline include psychologists, other health and mental health professionals, patients, families, and policymakers. The guideline development panel (GDP) used a systematic review conducted by the Kaiser Permanente Research Affiliates Evidence-Based Practice Center as its primary evidence base (O'Connor, Burda, Eder, Walsh, & Evans, 2016). The GDP consisted of researchers and clinicians in psychology, medicine, nursing, and nutrition as well as adult community members who had childhood and adolescent experience with obesity. Critical outcomes used in rating evidence and formulating recommendations were change in body mass index (BMI or zBMI) and serious adverse events. For child and adolescent patients aged 2 to 18 years with obesity or overweight, the GDP strongly recommends the provision of family-based multicomponent behavioral interventions, with a minimum of 26 contact hours, initiated at the earliest age possible. Due to insufficient evidence, the GDP was not able to make recommendations about specific forms of family-based multicomponent behavioral interventions with respect to their comparative effectiveness; associations with adherence, engagement, or retention in treatment; or specific effectiveness with patients or families with particular characteristics. Considerations and challenges related to implementing the recommended interventions are discussed, and areas in which additional research is needed are identified.

Work consisting of a set of statements, directions, or principles presenting current or future rules or policy. Guidelines may be developed by government agencies at any level, institutions, organizations such as professional societies or governing boards, or by the convening of expert panels. The text may be cursive or in outline form, but it is generally a comprehensive guide to problems and approaches in any discipline or activity. This concept relates to the general conduct and administration of health care activities rather than to specific decisions for a particular clinical condition. For that aspect, PRACTICE GUIDELINE is available.
Work consisting of a set of directions or principles to assist the health care practitioner with patient care decisions about appropriate diagnostic, therapeutic, or other clinical procedures for specific clinical circumstances. Practice guidelines may be developed by government agencies at any level, institutions, organizations such as professional societies or governing boards, or by the convening of expert panels. They can provide a foundation for assessing and evaluating the quality and effectiveness of health care in terms of measuring improved health, reduction of variation in services or procedures performed, and reduction of variation in outcomes of health care delivered.
