--Choice

"The third edition of this handbook provides students and practitioners with the most complete and up-to-date resource on contemporary topics in the field of health behavior change." Score: 95, 4 stars

--Doody's

Praise for the second edition: "This handbook sets a standard for conceptually based, empirically validated health behavior change interventions for the prevention and treatment of major diseases. It is an invaluable resource for the field of behavioral medicine as we work toward greater integration of proven health behavior change interventions into evidence-based medical practice."

--Susan J. Curry, PhD, Director, Center for Health Studies, Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound; Fellow, Society of Behavioral Medicine



Numerous acute and chronic diseases can be prevented simply by maintaining healthy behavioral patterns. This handbook provides practical and authoritative health management information for both health psychologists and primary care physicians whose clients and patients suffer from health-related issues and risks. The text also serves as a useful resource for policy makers and graduate students studying public health or health psychology.

This new edition of The Handbook of Health Behavior Change provides an updated and expanded view of the factors that influence the adoption of healthy behaviors. The contributors also examine the individual, social, and cultural factors that can inhibit or promote health behavior change.


Key Features:


  • Reviews of past and current models of health behavior change, disease prevention, disease management, and relapse prevention

  • Comprehensive coverage of health-related issues, including dietary needs, tobacco and drug use, safer sexual practices, and stress management

  • Analysis of behavior change within specific populations (young, elderly, cognitively impaired, etc.)

  • Factors that predict or serve as obstacles to lifestyle change and adherence

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Jesus Ramirez-Valles
This is a second, revised edition of a book on health-related behavioral change. The purpose is to describe and synthesize theoretical models, research, and clinical practice on individual health-related behavioral changes, with an emphasis on lifestyle and adherence. It is directed at behavioral scientists, health behavior researchers, graduate students, and clinical practitioners in health settings. The editors and contributors are among the best researchers and practitioners in the field, which makes this a valuable resource. This handbook attempts to describe and assess the state of the field as well as link theory, research, and practice. The models that have guided the field such as the Health Belief Model and Social Cognitive Theory, interventions aimed at promoting behavioral change, methodological issues, and clinical practice including ethical implications are all discussed. Although this handbook fails to address the role of groups, social networks, social context, ethnicity, and gender in health behavior change, it continues to be a good contribution to the field of individual health behavior change.
Choice
The extensive collection offers the most thorough examination of factors that influence behavior change, highlighting both the positive and negative influences. This important milestone in the field of health behavior change is recommended. . .
