T he anticipatory guidance component of every Bright Futures visit gives the health care professional, parents, and the child or adolescent a chance to ask questions and discuss issues of concern. This guidance is organized around 5 priority areas, and specific questions and discussion points are provided for the health care professional. Health care professionals are encouraged to adapt and enhance these questions and discussion points to meet the specific needs of their families and communities. The chapters in this section of the book focus on topics of public health importance, in which active discussion and guidance can make a positive impact in the lives of families. For example, the Motivational Interviewing chapter provides a framework to help health care professionals talk to patients and families about behavior change, a subject that is central to all the topics in this section of the book.
