Demands of managed care and wellness programs require that practitioners and researchers find effective models for behavior change. This Handbook has been updated to direct both care providers and policy makers to the most promising prevention and wellness therapies.

This second edition includes important findings on prevention topics like smoking cessation and addictions; adherence issues among patients with chronic diseases; and relapse behaviors. Issues associated with HIV are also given special emphasis, as well as behavior change in special populations, including teenagers and ethic groups.

Together, these chapters constitute a report on the state of behavior change therapy and the most reliable research results in the field.
