    schema:reviewBody ""Physical Activity Interventions in Children and Adolescents provides information on the current levels of youth physical activity and 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. Practical application of the information covered is demonstrated through real-world interventions that have been implemented in various settings. The programs and interventions are discussed in terms of their strengths, weaknesses, and level of success. Sample forms serve as valuable tools in evaluating and designing your own interventions in areas where proven programs are not yet available." "The result is a book that professionals can use in learning about physical activity and the role it plays in the lives of youth. It will guide readers in designing successful interventions that can change activity behavior for the children and adolescents with whom they work."--Jacket." ;
