In 1996 we had the pleasure of guest editing a special issue on biofeedback withchildren and adolescents. At the time it seemed cutting-edge and not yet widely available in most pediatric settings. As the last several years have gone by very quickly, healthcare has continue to change rapidly, with arguably the biggest wavebeing the emergence of interest in Complementary and Alternative Medicine(CAM)by consumers.. Recent surveys indicate that children, like their parents, are utilizing CAM in increasingnumbers, with approximately20% of kids in primary care settings reporting utilization of some form of CAM.In specialty services the percentage is even higher upwards of 50% (hematology/oncology, pulmonology, neu-rology). Mind/body approaches like biofeedback continue to represent foundational approaches for many chil-dren and adolescents and remain quite popular and well supported. It is exciting and gratifying for us to againhave the opportunity to guest edit the Biofeedback Magazine and offer unique perspectives on new directionsin pediatric healthcare.The first article offers an overview of pediatric trends with regard to the use of complementary and alterna-tive therapies and suggests the term “integrative” as preferable. The next three articles look at the variety of therapeutic options available across a number of domains for children with anxiety, headaches, and functionalGI problems. Reaney and Lessin look at comprehensive approaches for kids with urinary incontinence. Samiloand Carlson describe the benefits of adding biofeedback training in the treatment of complex, challengingchildren and adolescents in community settings-a specialized school program and a mental health clinic.These articles illustrate the evolution of diverse healthcare options now available for children with psy-chophysiological disorders, chronic illness, and mental health challenges and suggest that biofeedback and self-regulation skills training should continue to play key roles in holistic, evidence-based treatment approaches.This special issue of 
is devoted to
Pediatric Integrative  Medicine.
I am grateful to Timothy Culbert, Rebecca Kajander, and Judson Reaney, who have assembled a rich collection of articlesshowing the current state of the art in pediatrics, with an emphasison integrating biofeedback into a comprehensive integrative treat-ment, including both mainstream therapies and complementary and alternative therapies. The initial article by Dr. Culbert elabo-rates the orientation of this special issue, which emphasizes comple-mentary/alternative medicine and integrative therapies (CAMIT). AAPB owes an enormous debt of gratitude to Tim Culbert, JudReaney, and Rebecca Kajander. This team has exerted leadershipfrom the beginning in AAPB’s Pediatrics Section, and has presentedcountless symposia and workshops at AAPB’s annual meetings. Thisis their second special issue on pediatrics. Anyone who loves chil-dren will appreciate the creative andinnovative approach taken to the prob-lems of children in these pages. We also include here an article on children’s rights by SebastianStriefel. I also thank each of our authors and the AAPB productionstaff headed by Publications Manager Michael Thompson.The Association News and Events Section includes messagesfrom AAPB’s President Paul Lehrer, President-Elect Lynda Kirk, as well as other Association newsProposals and Abstracts are now invited for new special issues on:
